THE World Summit Series

Our programme of worldwide activity, headed by our flagship annual Times Higher Education World Academic Summit and a regular series of regional summits, bring together pre-eminent global thought leaders across higher education, research, industry and government to share best practice and innovation in the development and leadership of world-class universities and research.

Our events are the essential forum for leaders from across the academic community to meet and shape the future for international higher education governance and innovation. Alumni of our World Summit Series join a global network of outstanding presidents, vice-chancellors, chief executives and decision-makers to learn, interact, create and share knowledge and experience for the benefit of all.
