Reimagining universities for transdisciplinary knowledge co-creation

9-10 March 2021

The THE Southern African Universities Impact Forum saw leaders, funders and subject experts from higher education institutions across the continent and beyond convene to share research, ideas and solutions for research universities to foster transformative partnerships to adapt to the disruptions from Covid-19, accelerate their impact, and meet the SDGs.

The forum provided an essential space for university leaders to develop collaborative arrangements that will shape innovations and adaptions to the post-Covid world.


The forum also featured the exclusive live reveal of the THE Emerging Economies Rankings 2021, as well as a detailed masterclass examining the latest data for the THE Impact Rankings 2021.
