Innovation and Impact Summit on April, 2021


The outbreak of COVID-19 has definitely exposed us to a lot of challenges and disrupted our life. The global research community is seeking to respond to the challenges for global development and our survival. The University of Auckland and The Pennsylvania State University have joined together to come up with the four-day virtual summit on ‘Cultivating resilience, changing the world.’

The summit will be examining critical factors for supporting research impact based around different thematic areas.

Agenda Themes

  • What are the key drivers of global innovation?
  • Do we have the right vision of impact?
  • Does impact create resilience?
  • Do we know what we need?

That’s not it, the main highlight of the summit is that it will also be featuring the exclusive live reveal of The Impact Rankings 2021, a global performance table assessing universities against the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

The summit will take place from April 19 to April 22. It is a free online event open to anyone.
