Higher education regimes around the globe are at multiple crossroads. Academic institutions offering tertiary education face new challenges and opportunities stemming from processes of globalisation, technical innovation and social transformation. In order to think creatively about these changes, FES works with students, young and accomplished academics and policymakers to discuss alternative approaches and policy innovation at public and private universities.
What we aim for is a culture of education that helps create a just and equitable society. In a competitive national and global environment, this is not an easy task. Hence, FES engages in discussions about employability of university students and graduates, but also addresses questions on how education can be more than only market driven. For that, we help to connect visions across disciplines and across boundaries.
