About the Event

***This event has now ended***

“Education Innovation” could mean something different for an educator, a technologist, a corporate and for students. In this constantly evolving sector, we must find ways to accommodate changes in institutional demands, demographics, technology, student needs, pedagogical trends, political pressures, employability and other challenges.

If the robots are coming to change the nature of the world of work, how can the education sector respond? How can the sector today help create a workforce that can do tomorrow’s jobs? To what extent can education technology help? Are universities adequately equipped to be as agile as they now need to be? Where the opportunities for foreign collaboration?

Join EPG and the University of London to discuss these ideas at the Education Innovation Conference on 23rd January 2018 in London. The last two years of the EIC have seen major delegations of Vice Chancellors, skills providers, leading public policy thinkers, edtech companies and investors from around the world attending to discuss collaboration in this area. This year’s conference will attract more than 200 attendees, with delegates from over a dozen countries already confirmed.
