Universities are important sources for the development of human capital as well as significant research and economic centers. They accumulate and develop talents, conduct educational and research activities, attract leading experts (including those from abroad), and work with government agencies and commercial organizations. University campuses often make up separate districts or even towns adjacent to larger cities and megacities. They usually have a special architecture and a unique infrastructure and atmosphere. However, amidst the global transition to online learning, universities are reconsidering their outlook on the digitalization of education. Online education is becoming mainstream rather than optional. This has a significant impact on the relationships between universities and different stakeholders, including city authorities.
  • What is the role of universities for the city? How does the transition to online education affect the relationships between universities and the city?
  • How independent are universities from the city? How does the city support universities, and what does it get in return?
  • What can be done to make universities more attractive not only for local but also for international students, researchers, and experts?
