The landscape of higher education is evolving rapidly and profoundly. What trends and global challenges (eg climate change) will have an impact on the concept of universities, and how will this necessitate a rethinking of the role of internationalisation in research and education? The author of ‘Higher Education in 2040: A Global Approach' plus a panel of experts will engage with the audience to discuss the necessary changes in higher education in the decades to come.
