International networks and exchange in graduate education is both an important feature and challenge for all aspiring universities in the world. Joining forces and developing strategies is the major aim of the Council of Graduate Schools (CGS) holding their annual global meeting at the Kloster Seeon/ Bavaria from 4-6 September this year. TUM Graduate Dean and IGSSE Director Prof. Dr. Ernst Rank is delighted to welcome 40 graduate deans, vice presidents and vice provosts from universities of more than 15 countries to discuss the recent developments and prepare the path for commendable schemes.
This year´s topic "From Brain Drain to Brain Circulation: Graduate Education for Global Career Pathways" reflects the ongoing discussions in the global graduate education community, with special regard to the national schemes supporting major investments in graduate education and research. As research networks become more global, so do career pathways. Global research and development (R&D) networks, along with new technologies for communication and collaborations make it easier for scientists to work in and between different international locations, stimulating research that benefits multiple economies and institutions.The 2012 Global Summit will focus on the role of graduate institutions in supporting new pathways of brain circulation and preparing future research professionals to create and share knowledge across local and global contexts.
Topics for subsequent panels will include:
- Understanding and Shaping Global Careers for Graduate Students
