A combination of keynote speeches, participatory debates, live polling, case studies and panel discussions, accompanied by a THE rankings masterclass will support attendees as they consider these key themes:
Hundreds of leaders from the world’s best and most ambitious universities and research-led companies will reflect on what are the optimum conditions for human talent to develop and how some of the key obstacles can be overcome.
