The University of Tomorrow

Digital technologies are disrupting all areas of modern life, from the way we create and distribute products, the way we analyze and regulate traffic, to the way we socialize and interact with one another. The factory of tomorrow has already been designed, as has the city of the future. But what about the way we conduct research and train students, scientists, and the workforce of the future? What about higher education?

This panel discussion will address how institutions of higher education in the US and Germany are changing in the digital age. How do they meet the demands of a new generation of scholars and scientists and how do they adapt to disruptive technologies such as blockchain and cloud computing? How can new models of public-private partnership assist in making these transitions?
