Knowledge Exchange - Redefining Academic Leadership

We connect British and Dutch higher education institutes to exchange knowledge and create new connections. We do this through facilitating policy dialogues, webinars and events on topics of mutual interest.

Redefining Academic Leadership - 3 October 2023

On 3 October, the British Council, British Embassy and the UK Science & Innovation Network are organising a Knowledge Exchange roundtable discussion about Redefining Academic Leadership. 

What do we mean by good leadership in academic leadership? Often, we can use terms and criteria that favour one group over another. In this deep conversation event, we will share knowledge between the UK and the Netherlands on how we can redefine academic leaderships to make sure it reflects the talents of all and the practical support that Higher Education Institutions need to put in place to support new and emerging leaders.
