ACCELERATING PARTNERSHIPS, IMPACT AND INNOVATION AT UNIVERSITIES
Over the last few years, universities have increased their efforts to be more engaged with external stakeholders, better connected to the local and regional ecosystem and to achieve greater impact.
However, this remains challenging for universities, especially while trying to maintain education and research excellence. Some of these challenges include:
- Lack of clarity and shared vision of goals with respect to partnerships and entrepreneurship
- Difficulty to coordinate engagement activities across the university, and maintain oversight over the different activities
- Having pressure to generate revenue and greater impact while trying to identify the right metrics to track this
In this panel discussion, university experts will share their insights and experience around actions and initiatives they have taken or are currently taking to accelerate partnerships, impact and innovation at their institutions. Drawing on learnings from the UIIN Institutional Programs, this panel discussion provides an opportunity to learn more about what you can do at your own organisation, and to network and engage with the speakers and participants.
The aim of this panel discussion is to hear and learn from university leaders who are directly involved in enhancing partnerships, innovation, entrepreneurship and impact at their universities. Participants will further have the opportunity to network with the speakers and other attendees after the discussion.
This panel discussion is designed for university leaders, managers and professional staff who are looking for ways to enhance and accelerate their institution’s external engagement.
