Health and well-being are basic human rights and key indicators of sustainable development. Poor health threatens access to education and work, increases poverty, and limits personal and economic development. It is a key cause of – as well as a result of – poverty. Health is also affected by other factors strongly linked to sustainability and development.
In partnership with RCSI University of Medicine and Health Sciences, the THE University Impact Forum will gather leaders and subject experts from higher education institutions to share research ideas and solutions to address the key health conditions and diseases that impact on human outcomes around the world.
The event will also provide exclusive insight into the metrics and methodology behind the THE Impact Rankings 2021, with a focus on SDG3: Good health and well-being.
Rethinking health research and innovation
Thanks to the emergence of big data and artificial intelligence, healthcare research and innovation have come a long way in the past few decades. So how are universities using the latest technology in their research that will create the next generation of global health solutions?
Global collaboration and the future of healthcare
Collaboration in healthcare is essential to achieve sustainability in the expanding healthcare market, as well as to improve and diversify its resources. Here, we will address how effective collaborations between higher education and civil society can result in lasting transformational change and support progress towards reaching SDG3 by 2030.
Building resilient societies
How do societies deal with a global healthcare crisis? As demand for 21st-century healthcare grows, so do the pressures on medical services; but the ability to respond to a healthcare crisis is entirely dependent on the resources and services available. Experts will discuss how universities can capitalise on their skills and knowledge to build resilience and create a more direct and impactful connection with society.
