Times Higher Education’s first summit in Japan will take place at Fujita Health University in Nagoya, the industrial heartland of the nation and one of the world’s great urban and commercial hubs.
Fujita – one of Japan’s leading medical universities, renowned for its expertise in rehabilitative and neuropsychiatric medicine – was established almost 60 years ago to spark creative approaches to medical education. The Asia Universities Summit 2020 will discover how this spirit of innovation continues today in research, education and collaborations with industry, and how it has been strengthened by scholars and students increasingly crossing national and disciplinary boundaries, as well as building links between industry and academia.
After 14 years as a landmark event in the UK higher education calendar, 2019 saw us take the prestigious THE Awards overseas for the first time. Following a hugely successful inaugural year, the THE Awards Asia 2020 has twice as many categories, giving more opportunities for institutions – whether they are household names or those working near-miracles away from the spotlight – to tell the world about the transformational work they do.
These awards also offer a major international platform to recognise outstanding leadership and institutional performance, and celebrate Asian higher education excellence in all of its diversity.
The most extraordinary concentration of wisdom, expertise and top contacts in higher education today.
