This year's theme is 'Global Connections, local Impact' and the conference will address vital questions:

  • Against the backdrop of financial, environmental and political challenges how can leaders and policy makers develop a well-understood role for institutions in terms of their social obligation and knowledge economy impact?
  • What are the top priorities in ensuring national tertiary education is fit to shape societies of the future, meet the future needs of students, employers and communities?
  • How can global tertiary networks contribute to their achievement?
