Universities and cities: Advancing sustainable innovation
7–9 November 2023 Shenzhen, China
We are delighted to be partnering with Southern University of Science and Technology (SUSTech) for the THE Innovation & Impact Summit 2023. Leaders will gather in Shenzhen, China, to analyse how universities can create and sustain cities that are hubs of innovation.
The summit will explore:
Which contributions can universities make to reduce regional inequity?
How might universities become the catalysts for transforming the prospects of urban communities?
Where in the world are the most innovative cities?
How important are universities in supporting the creation of new cities and regional economies like Shenzhen and the Greater Bay Area?
Urban areas are exposed and vulnerable to climate risks such as droughts, floods and heat stress. How can universities contribute to reinventing cities and helping them adapt to the punishing effects of climate change?
What role can universities play in mitigating this impact and ensuring cities won’t just survive but thrive, innovatively and sustainably?
