Role of Higher Education, Science and New Alliances in the Context of the 2030 Agenda

Role of Higher Education, Science and New Alliances in the Context of the 2030 Agenda

Jointly organized by the German Federal Ministry of Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ), Alexander von Humboldt Foundation (AvH), German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD), Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH, and KfW Development Bank. 

Key questions to be discusses include as: 

•       Not just a target but an integral part: Recognizing the role of higher education and science in the overall 2030 Agenda – What does “transformative higher education and science” mean?

•        Only Wor(l)ds apart: Encouraging co-operation between universities and development agencies in focal areas of the SDG-Agenda; 

•       Complex problems call for new alliances: Promoting dialogue between universities, the private sector, civil society, and funding institutions;

•      Turning aspirational goals into action: Translating relevant targets of SDG 4 (quality education, scholarships) into meaningful and feasible strategies.
