Going Global 2015

Conference date: 1-2 June, 2015

The conference for leaders of international education

Going Global is a forum for education world leaders to debate international higher and further education issues and challenges, and to discuss collaborative solutions. 

Going Global 2015 will take place on 1 and 2 June 2015 at the Queen Elizabeth II Centre in Westminster, London. 

Connecting cultures, forging futures

We propose the fusion of diverse cultures generates a creative force, which is a major catalyst of leading edge innovation. Investment in the connection of these cultures produces a tangible return and measurable impact for the future.

Going Global 2015 will explore this through three perspectives:

• Academic discipline and subject cultures: including the impact of multi-disciplinary teams from various fields of study; as well as different cultures of research, teaching and skills development.

• Organisational cultures - particularly those of higher education institutions; business; skills providers; NGOs and social enterprises.

• National, regional and local cultures and the extent to which connecting people and ideas across these cultures generates a creative force leading to innovation. 

We will explore how networks of innovation evolve and grow when cultures cut across boundaries, looking at the role higher education institutions play globally in connecting cultures, as well as anchoring and sustaining networks of innovation.
