Knowledge Cooperation for Connecting the Societies
The panel “Role of Universities in Shaping the Future of the Society” has the goal to broaden the public responsibility for and of Higher Education. It follows the European Standards and Guidelines (ESGs) for institutions in the Higher Education Area, pointing out the responsibility of higher education to harness the promise of digital transformation.

The Internet was rolled out thanks to involvement of Universities, leading to the National Research and Education Networks (NRENs). The NRENs, connecting Higher Education Institutions (HEIs), have created the base for connectivity and services. One of the most notable services is Eduroam, providing roaming access to NRENs in more than 100 countries around the globe.

The current discussion on “infrastructure in underserved areas” shows the need for affordable backbones to foster school connectivity and community empowerment. Examples of such solutions include the Regional Competence Centres (RCCs) for school connectivity, as well as Community Learning & Living Labs (CL3). The session will bring together academic representatives to foster the “Connect the Future” by ideas and best praxis.
