Global Education Dialogues: The Power of Consortia

How can universities solve the global grand research challenges?

Today, it is recognised that research must be internationally driven and connected at multiple levels to achieve scale. Nations cannot afford to tackle the complex problems of an interconnected world alone: global challenges require global solutions.

There is a powerful strategic demand for universities to join consortia, work with a range of partners, and position themselves in a global context.

Themes

How can universities maximise their collaboration power and achieve common outcomes at a multilateral scale?

Who should they partner, how do they find the right partnerships?

How will the role of national and global funders change a world where the goal of securing a sustainable future will require active collaboration with emerging powers?

How do universities help create sustainable futures and solve the challenges of our global society?
