Shaping our Common Future: Universities in a Global Society

It is with pride and gratitude that Ghent University looks back at the international rectors’ conference. More than 100 participants were present, representing 63 institutions from 30 different countries.

This gathering of university leaders offered a unique opportunity to discuss and learn from each other about how to respond as a university to the challenging world we live in. It was unanimously agreed upon that universities should continue to cooperate and join forces to tackle the challenges ahead of us. We believe that through this meeting we have made history, and that the foundations have been laid down to shape a common future.
