QS Asia stages unique women leadership seminar in Europe
The QS in conversation seminar successfully concluded on Feb 3, 2016, in Milan, Italy. The seminar—first time in its history to be held in Europe—was a great success convening more than 120 delegates from 63 institutions and organizations in 34 countries. A diverse array of participants, from university leaders to representatives of diplomatic corps and international business, exchanged their experiences in promoting the empowerment of women in an effort to define a conceptual framework for female leadership in higher education and propose educational programs and policies that make women’s participation in society more effective.
The next QS in conversation seminar will be held in August this year, with a focus on how universities can monetize their research by giving venture capitalists access to early-stage technologies as well as create opportunities for young university researchers who are looking for a career beyond academia.
