Over the last 10 years, we have witnessed major shifts in technology, society, and the world of work. These have impacted the role of higher education in a fundamental way, yet it is unclear whether we are already in a position to fully assess these generally unrelated developments. But some elements in this complex mix make it clear enough that the role of education has to alter under these conditions – that we need to reassess and reshape what universities can do in this very framework and how. As we take a first look into this combination of developments, this conference aims to reach out to participants who boast the courage and the innovative spirit to reinvent and redesign universities yet again.
