Higher education is experiencing unparalleled change. Even before COVID-19, the sector was undergoing significant transformation as concerns such as climate change, shifting student demographics and needs, increased edtech innovations, and a new model of working emerged, increasing the importance of partnerships and collaboration.

Bringing QS APPLE online for the first time, the 2020 event will look at how institutions can meaningfully partner to overcome these barriers and create a robust future. Under the theme New World Partnerships for Resilience and Climate Action, the conference and exhibition will bring together experts, thought leaders, educators and students to discuss best practice, case examples, and partnerships, to create way forward for higher education in the Asia Pacific.
