Theme of the Month:

Creativity and Innovation


Innovation is at the heart of the global economy. The spread of the Covid-19 epidemic has had a major impact and implication on the operation of the world economy, the global governance system, and the international political landscape and the global higher education. However, from a comprehensive, dialectical and historical perspective, the essential nature of the interdependence of the human society still exists. The basic elements of economic development, the objective laws of the global governance, the global academic impact of universities and colleges and maintaining peace, dignity and equality on a healthy planet cannot be completely changed by an epidemic. In 2017, United Nation decides to designate 21 April as World Creativity and Innovation Day.

The main goal of this series of innovation forums is to explore the new normal and rethinking of the global innovation trends, opportunities and challenges in the post COVID-19 era, inspire current and strategic thinking, provide a platform for exploring linkages and mechanisms, and explore appropriate and effective modes of maintaining peace, embracing innovation and sustainability, strategic alliances between governments, universities and global firms, international trade, knowledge transfer and knowledge sharing, culture creativityand technology innovation and collaboration globally. Our intent is to provoke creative and innovative ideas, by bringing together various stakeholders, including academics, researchers, university presidents, deans of business schools, corporate leaders, policy makers, venturecapitalists, managers, and senior students for exchange of ideas, research findings, current experiences, best practices, and lessons learned. The intellectual lens will rotate around addressing various questions of new normal and rethinking of global trends, opportunities and challenges in the post covid-19 era with a focus on maintaining world peace, dignity and equality in a healthy planet.

The theme of webinar for this month is Creativity and Innovation.
