The CIOB is pleased to inform you that the CIOB Academic Summit, is taking place on 14 September 2022. This is a unique conference dedicated to a global academic community. An accessible virtual conference that will lead the way to transform academics connect-ability on a global scale, leading the way for cross collaborations, sharing of cutting-edge research, knowledge, and education, and most importantly building of a strong sense of community.
Africa represents some of the best high quality and research intensive universities in the world. In April 2022 the QS World University Rankings by subject declared that African higher education institutions are steadily scaling the academic ladder as 23 university departments in three countries were among the world’s 100 best places to study subjects they offer.
The South African higher education system remained at the top on the continent as its universities accounted for 55% of all the departments that were ranked. The universities with top ranking departments included, University of Cape Town (UCT), University of the Witwatersrand (Wits), University of Pretoria and Makerere University. It also appears that African universities are stepping forward to align their works, goals, and aspirations to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) as articulated by the United Nations’ Agenda 2030. Universities are seeking solutions for the world’s most critical matters. Therefore, the CIOB wants to have universities from the African countries represented at our Academic Summit in September 2022 because there is a lot to learn from these respected institutions.
We expect to bring together leaders and pioneers in built environment education on a global scale so that knowledge can be shared, confidence can be built and agility, innovation, and inclusivity in academia can be demonstrated. We aim to produce opportunities for problem solving partnerships and open communications through this conference.
