Hosted in partnership with Fujita Health University, the THE Asia Universities Summit 2022 will examine how universities can remain vital to a Covid-disrupted society and serve the needs of a rapidly changing world. The inequality of educational opportunities remains a challenge yet a paradigm shift is occurring in higher education with new methods, models and missions of learning emerging.
Meanwhile Asia, the world’s largest and most populous continent, also faces a demographic crisis. In many countries, population decline threatens to disrupt the talent pipeline required to resource future knowledge and industrial growth. Universities urgently need to adapt to provide learning opportunities that will upskill the people in the societies that they serve. Otherwise, how can we solve tomorrow’s future challenges without the human resource to do so?
The summit will also feature the exclusive live reveal of the THE Asia University Rankings 2022, accompanied by a data masterclass to explore the latest data and identify the best-performing institutions.
