UGPN Annual Conference 2021 Goes Virtual

The University Global Partnership Network (UGPN) Virtual Conference 2021 will bring together delegates from four world-leading Universities: North Carolina State University, University of Sao Paulo, the University of Surrey and the University of Wollongong, to promote and facilitate innovative collaborations in research and education. Organized virtually this year for the first time, the conference will be held over  four days: March 22-25, 2021.

The major theme for the conference is Resilient Universities, which will include a focus on three sub-themes: Health and Wellbeing, Industries for the Future, and Sustainable Planet, which relate to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (UN SDG). The agenda for the four days will consist of plenary sessions, concurrent theme-based SDG research workshops as well as resiliency sessions that address topics such as Innovations in Remote Learning and Hybrid Education, Student Mobility and Mission Continuity.

Registration is now open and we look forward to your participation in this opportunity to connect with faculty, staff and students from across the UGPN member institutions. More information is available on the conference website.
