Pia’s keynote will draw on her experience as a champion of openness in software, knowledge, standards and governance to propose open and collaborative approaches as the best way to meet rapid technological changes.
Her presentation, Collaborative Innovation: Digital Transformation through Stronger Human Networks, looks at how organisations and graduates need to work together for the ‘greater good.’
“Modern universities must play a key role in this connected and collaborative future,” said Pia.
“Not only by creating and sharing new knowledge but by creating graduates who have the skills, creativity, attitudes and values to share and collaborate across disciplines, organisations and the world.”
