“We do not have to choose between the local, the national, and the global. Nor can we, in a world in which global cooperation is not an option, but a necessity, and where the local and the global are irrevocably intertwined.” Professor Janet Beer, Vice-Chancellor of the University of Liverpool and Vice-President of Universities UK, speaking at the Opening plenary.
The conference took place 22-24 May 2017 at the Queen Elizabeth II Centre, London and was attended by over 900 delegates (leaders in higher education, business and government) from around the world.
Some 77 countries were represented by delegates, including vice-chancellors, pro vice-chancellors, and government ministers.
