THE’s agenda-setting events provide unrivalled thought leadership to get under the skin of the issues making the sector tick. Chaired by our expert staff and journalists, our wide-ranging series of events bring together global leaders and influencers from across academia, government and industry to debate, discuss and drive forward the future of higher education governance, innovation and research.
WHAT'S ON THE AGENDA?
Over the course of the year, THE’s portfolio of events will address all aspects of transforming higher education, which we categorise across seven core areas:
Transforming the institution
Transforming teaching and learning
Our programme of worldwide events is headed each year by our flagship THE World Academic Summit. In addition, a regular series of regional three-day summits bring together pre-eminent global thought leaders across higher education, research, industry and government to discuss the development and leadership of world-class universities.
Senior leaders across higher education, research, industry and policymaking come together to share data, best practice and innovative ideas about the future of the world’s universities.
One event that’s not to be missed! We host lively discussions and debates, workshops and roundtables on the most pressing issues facing academic leaders and professional staff right now.
Come along to get the latest from experts and key influencers in the sector. Hear from government decision-makers, NGOs and those in the most senior positions in higher education.
Take part in exclusive member-only roundtable discussions on the hottest topics throughout the year, hosted by our partners, in-house staff and journalists. We also offer member-only THE dinners with exclusive networking opportunities.
