Corporate Lunch with Monash VC Professor Ed Byrne

Strong universities are vital to Australia maintaining its international competitiveness. But government income is flatlining, international student numbers are declining and open online courses are challenging the traditional university model. Can our universities continue to compete with the best of Europe and America and the massive resources pouring into research and education in Asia?

Professor Ed Byrne is the Vice-Chancellor of Monash University, the first Australian university to open a campus in China. Join him as he charts a way forward for the Australian university sector. He will sketch out a radical reimagining of the university campus in the wake of the ICT revolution, the rise of the globally-networked university system and ways Australia can get the best out of its relationship with China.
