Phil Baty, editorial director of Times Higher Education’s global rankings, explores what the World Economic Forum’s community of universities – the Global University Leaders Forum (GULF) – can teach us about industry-academia collaboration and innovation with economic impact.
In this video from Davos, he speaks to: Michael Hengartner, president of the University of Zurich; Lino Guzella, president of ETH Zurich – Swiss Federal Institute of Technology Zurich; Peter Salovey, president of Yale University; Suzanne Fortier, principal of McGill University; and Andrea Schenker-Wicki, rector of the University of Basel.
Tim Sowula, head of content and engagement for the World Summit Series, speaks with Phil Baty and M’hamed el Aisati, director of content and analytics for research management at Elsevier, about the economic impact of the WEF’s GULF universities. We then hear excerpts from leaders of those universities discussing the importance of collaborations between higher education and industry.
