FUTURE UNIVERSITY

MAPPING THE FUTURE CHALLENGES AND NEEDS IN HIGHER EDUCATION AND RESEARCH

The Swiss university landscape is undergoing a transformation

Digitalisation, increasing international competition and growing individualisation present universities with new challenges. How will knowledge be communicated effectively in the future, and what are the skills that universities will need to equip students with? And what kind of ecosystems will we find in tomorrow’s university landscape?

The SWITCH foundation recently introduced the FUTURE UNIVERSITY initiative in cooperation with the think tank W.I.R.E. The launch event welcomed over 100 decision-makers from the Swiss university landscape and gave them much to think about regarding trends in education and research.

To the Story

FUTURE UNIVERSITY study

The think tank W.I.R.E. has analysed the university landscape in partnership with SWITCH and developed theses and fields of action for the universities of tomorrow on this basis. 

We would be happy to share with you the study, which is available digitally.
