This week on the podcast the government’s integrated review of security, defence, development and foreign policy puts science and technology at the centre of international relations.
But where do universities fit into that agenda?
There’s also an interesting new HEPI report on admissions to get across, the threat of the silencing of student protest posed by the police, crime, sentencing and courts bill and a new report on the relationship between colleges and universities. Plus Mike Ratcliffe’s Hidden History looks at the expansion of the sector in the sixties.
With Anne-Marie Canning, CEO at the Brilliant Club, Osama Khan, Pro Vice Chancellor, Education at the University of Surrey, David Kernohan, Associate Editor at Wonkhe and Mark leach, CEO at Wonkhe.
