This special event will bring together university leaders, experts and decision-makers to discuss and debate the best initiatives and newest ideas on how to achieve academic excellence in the region.

We will discuss how Latin America can confront challenges and embrace new strategies and ideas to further develop the great potential that the region undoubtedly has.
