The 2018 GUNi International Conference was convened in Barcelona for November 19-20 by the Global University Network for Innovation (GUNi). The event bought together over 160 attendees from 22 different countries for two days of workshops, keynotes and panel discussions on the topic of Humanities and Higher Education: Generating Synergies between Science, Technology and Humanities. The Conference was held at the CosmoCaixa Science Museum. During the event, participants and speakers debated the role and future of humanities and the much-needed interrelations and dialogues between science, technology and humanities in light of current trends and global issues.
This International Conference is conceived as an integral part of the process of elaboration of the 7th GUNi Higher Education in the World Report, which will be published in 2019.
