As part of IESALC’s project on the Futures of Higher Education, we are collaborating with higher education experts from every part of the world. Our team of experts are highly distinguished figures with extensive experience in teaching, researching and/or enacting higher education. Working with these experts, we are generating innovative and visionary ideas about the purpose and functions of higher education around the world as it might be thirty years from now.

Each expert prepared a concept note sharing their views, ideas, and expertise on the two key questions this project is exploring: How would you like higher education to be in 2050? How could higher education contribute to better futures for all in 2050?

We invite you to read their concept notes, which are available below in English, French and Spanish.

In addition, IESALC together with the UNESCO Future of Learning and Innovation team are organizing a series of workshops with this group. The workshops provide opportunities to dialogue and develop the ideas and thinking developed in the concept notes.
