In partnership with the prestigious Swedish university KTH Royal Institute of Technology, the THE Innovation & Impact Summit 2022 united leaders of the best and most ambitious universities with policymakers, world-class researchers and the companies that are shaping our future to discuss the contribution that higher education can make to a successful, prosperous and sustainable innovation ecosystem.
We explored some of the issues that affect the creation of a positive environment for innovation and questioned how research universities can sustain and support that environment.
We debated the importance of talent, regulation, diversity and investment in delivering a prosperous innovation climate, and what kind of impact that may have in the market and in wider society.
How universities can create a national innovation culture
Regulating responsibly – is there a role for universities?
Assessing impact – where can universities make the greatest intervention?
Lean innovation – the value of diversity
The summit also featured the exclusive live reveal of the THE Impact Rankings 2022, the largest ever global data-set on university impact, measured by the United Nations’ SDGs, accompanied by a data masterclass identifying the best-performing institutions.
