Symposium on the Renovating and Possibilities of Higher Education in the GBA

Higher education is a significant part of regional development and plays a key role in promoting economy and society. The central government of China expects its universities to drive the national initiative known as the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macau Greater Bay Area (GBA). Specifically, the universities are to provide the scientific talent and technical expertise for the GBA to become the next world center of innovation in science and technology. This workshop will identify the accomplishments, challenges, obstacles, and possibilities for higher education in the GBA. It will address a number of questions about the major characteristics of universities across the GBA, their diversity in finance, governance, curriculum, academic staff, research output, knowledge exchange, and cooperation, both domestic and international. It will consider the most influential stakeholders and how they steer higher education in the GBA. We invite researchers in the field of comparative and international higher education to address the key issues with groundbreaking insights grounded in data analyzes from diverse perspectives.
