Together with Paris Sciences et Lettres (PSL) we are hosting a one day seminar bringing together higher education leaders from France and the UK, as well as across Europe.
As higher education becomes increasingly global and competitive, an ever-greater focus is being placed on international rankings, research collaborations, institutional networks and alliances, and the mobility of students and faculty. As universities across Europe develop their international approaches, this seminar will encourage reflection, share experiences and build connections with higher education leaders. Key topics for discussion will be:
- What opportunities and challenges do global higher education trends present for institutions?
- How are institutions evolving networks, associations and alliances to increase competitivity?
- How do institutions develop their internationalisation approaches?
Influential figures in higher education will lead and stimulate discussion through panel discussions.
