The University Global Partnership Network Virtual Conference 2021 brings together delegates from four world-leading universities - NC State, the University of Sao Paulo, the University of Surrey and the University of Wollongong - to promote and facilitate innovative collaborations in research and education. The program includes plenary sessions on salient topics in higher education and research as well as research workshops aligned with specific United Nations sustainable development goals related to:

  • Health and well-being.
  • Industries for the future.
  • A sustainable planet.

Resiliency workshops provide an opportunity for delegates across the network to share and discuss key areas of activity impacted by the global pandemic, including student and staff mobility, transitioning to remote learning, communications and mental health and well-being.
