Representatives from universities will converge on the University of Bradford for the first World Technology Universities Congress.
The event takes place at the University’s Emm Lane and Richmond Road campuses on 8-9 September 2016 with an extensive programme. It aims to create a global partnership between education, business, governments and development organisations.
The Congress will consider the creation of a World Technology Universities Network and suitable terms of reference, plus how to create opportunities to showcase joint working.
If a core number of universities are in agreement, a statement of intent to develop the Network will be signed. The Congress will provide a platform for senior figures from higher education, business and government to develop alliances and discuss capacity-building opportunities. It will also consider the importance of educating graduates to be global citizens in a technology-rich 21st Century.
