Which Universities Will Lead in Asia Pacific in 2030?

The top 100 group of the world university rankings has changed significantly in recent years and is going to change in the future. The proposed session will discuss the key long-term factors of university competitiveness and success in regional education and research markets: - advanced digitalization of learning methods and campus management; - integration into global networks and strategic partnerships with world-leading universities and industries; - ability to generate revenue from R&D commercialization and government-funded programs (given that the latter are increasingly allocating resources on the competitive basis); - awareness of and responsiveness to regional development challenges and labor market evolution.

- understand the key strategic factors of university success and regional leadership; 
- get an insight into the future landscape of the education and research market in Asia Pacific.
