Join us on 1–3 September for the THE World Academic Summit 2021, in partnership with the University of Toronto in Canada, to focus on the interrelationship between universities and the places in which they are located.
The connections between our digital and physical worlds are rapidly evolving. The power of place in those dimensions is facing re-evaluation. Consequently, the modern university’s status and mission are evolving.
University presidents, world-class researchers, political leaders and senior executives from transnational businesses will gather to examine the complex interrelation between university and place by exploring these agenda themes:
Universities’ contribution to place
Place’s impact on universities
Has the digital classroom replaced the campus?
How do global networks complement local success?
The summit will also feature the exclusive live reveal of the THE World University Rankings 2022, accompanied by a detailed masterclass examining the latest data.
