What are our big ideas for research-based higher education in the 21st century?
How can universities align both research and teaching to address global challenges?
How can research-based education help universities impact public policy?
How can research-based education allow universities to better address inequalities, including of race, gender, and indigenous people?

These are other questions were analyzed and discussed during the ‘Connecting Higher Education: International perspectives on research-based education‘ Conference, held on 26th-27th-28th June in London. It was hosted by the UCL Institute of Education – University College London. This international conference seeks to conceptualise higher education for the future and it focuses on how research-based education can help universities make an impact for good in the world.
