Networks of innovation and high-impact collaborations in the Asian Century - lessons from Monash University's model

Synopsis:

The great research problems of our time are too big to be solved within the confines of the nation state. At the same time, today’s university graduates go on to careers that could take them anywhere in the world. Their university education must prepare them accordingly. International collaboration is an essential part of any response to both of these issues. Professor Byrne will discuss three different models of international collaboration, drawing parallels between the world of higher education and the world of business, where such collaborations have been part of the landscape for much longer. He will outline the partnerships Monash has forged with the Indian Institute of Technology Bombay in India, Southeast University in the People’s Republic of China and Warwick University in the UK, highlighting the issues and expected benefits of each model, and demonstrating how each has a vital role to play in enabling universities to thrive in the Asian Century.
