Our modern world has been revolutionised over the past two decades by the emergence of data as our most precious resource; therefore, who can capture, own, understand and utilise data has become the defining power struggle of our times.
THE’s Festival of Data – held in connection with the World Academic Summit – is the must-attend annual forum where the higher education sector’s leaders and data experts from across the world come together to share their strategies and tools for transforming research, teaching and university impact in the 21st century.
In higher education, THE’s independent data teamwork with 2,600 institutions in 93 countries, with 1 million data points analysed each year. This has given THE unparalleled expertise in the trends underpinning university performance globally. THE’s data and benchmarking tools are used by many of the world’s most prestigious universities to help them achieve their missions and goals, and by national governments to help them understand the effectiveness of their policies. THE’s analysis was accessed more than 90 million times online in 2019.
This Festival of Data will enable all participants to gain a better insight into the global key trends, and identify the key actors and key tools that will govern how data will reshape higher education over the next 10 years.
