Share this on social media:

This webinar on 20 July, presented by Dr Jamil Salmi, will look at how research universities are emerging as the central institutions of the 21st century knowledge economies.

In this context, the presentation will start by offering an operational definition of a world-class university. It will then outline and analyse possible strategies and pathways for establishing such universities. It will also share lessons of experience based on recent work with countries and institutions that are keen on establishing world-class universities, identifying in the process some of the challenges, costs, and risks associated with these attempts.

Until January 2012, he was the World Bank’s tertiary education coordinator. He wrote the first World Bank policy paper on higher education reform in 1994 and was the principal author of the Bank’s 2002 Tertiary Education Strategy entitled 'Constructing Knowledge Societies: New Challenges for Tertiary Education'.
