Crossing boundaries, unlocking creativity

1-3 June 2021 | Aichi, Japan

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 2021 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.

The summit will also feature the exclusive live reveal of the THE Asia University Rankings 2021, along with a series of data masterclasses led by the THE data team.




The most extraordinary concentration of wisdom, expertise and top contacts in higher education today.
