In 2006, the Forum created the Global University Leaders Forum (GULF), a community of the presidents of the top 27 universities in the world, to offer them a non-competitive platform for high-level dialogue on higher education and research. The GULF gives universities the opportunity to engage a larger pool of stakeholders, including the business community, in their discussions and initiatives to foster collaboration in areas of significance for global policy.
The community is currently focusing on two topics: the future of higher education, and the role of science in society.
The Forum also collaborates with a broader network of top universities by integrating them into the Forum’s projects and programming activities throughout the year.
