OECD-ERIA GoHE in Conversation with Markus Buchhorn, APAN
The OECD together with the Economic Research Institute for ASEAN and East Asia (ERIA) is pleased to invite you to join the 10th of a series of webinars with prominent international experts. These webinars discuss the relationship between higher education institutions and innovation ecosystems, continuing on from our previous on-line meetings, about the Geography of Higher Education (#GoHE).
The next guest of the series “GoHE in Conversation with..” is Markus Buchhorn, from APAN.
In a 45-minute event (including Q&A), we will discuss with Markus about digital infrastructure, digital skills within HEIs, and the way in which HEIs can promote digital transformation and capabilities, in their own ecosystems and networks.
This webinar will be the first of a short series of events focussing on different aspects of the digital transformation in higher education.
