The conference for leaders of international education

13–15 May 2019 | Berlin, Germany

As innovations transforms our society, they bring both great opportunities and significant risks. New technologies and platforms are revolutionising the way  knowledge is produced, accessed and used globally. But while technologies are creating huge opportunities and wealth for some, many more remain excluded, deepening inequality and polarising societies. 

If these topics are close to you and you'd like to debate them and connect with education leaders from around the world, join our Going Global 2019 conference. This year's theme is 'Knowledge diplomacy and the digital world: does international tertiary education have a role?'. You can find out more about it on our global website.

Who should attend?

If you are a university or college vice-chancellor, president or principal, an adviser, minister or government representative, journalist or policy and strategy maker, or a professional and trade body working in international education, then we look forward to seeing you there.
