New university models are emerging, mobilising students to work on the most pressing problems in society through new approaches, courses, labs and real-life problem based initiatives.
Over the next year, SIX will bring together leading universities to co-design a series of learning programmes and activities to increase the speed of learning between them, and to promote new ways of collaboration.
We will connect them to the latest innovation tools, methods and examples from other sectors. Universities will take on a leading role in their respective countries, spearheading social innovation among the wider academic sector.
To understand how universities are engaging in social innovation around the world, read SIX's Global Scan, Five ways universities are organising themselves to increase societal impact.
