A blog series, looking at issues in higher education ahead of the Global University Summit 2013, is now available on the Knowledge Centre website.

The sixth Global University Summit brings an invitation-only audience of leaders from the world’s foremost universities, senior policy-makers and international business executives to London in 2013.

The topic of this year’s Summit is ‘universities and economic growth’ and will take place on 28 – 30 May 2013 in the spectacular setting of One Whitehall Place and the Royal Horseguards, a five-star venue in Whitehall, London.

Delegates will discuss the major global challenges facing higher education and society today. They will then prepare a declaration of commitment and policy recommendations for the G8 summit of world leaders.

This prestigious event is being organised and hosted by the University of Warwick in association with Thomson Reuters, Times Higher Education and Universities UK International Unit.

This is an invitation-only event.

A pre-summit report is now available to download. acrobat.gif
