ISCN’s Second Series of Virtual Events Kick-Off: Next steps on developing UN sustainability indicators with the ranking agencies.

You may remember that ISCN organized on June 24th a virtual event on the topic of: Times Higher Education Impact Ranking: a catalyzer towards more sustainability in Universities? The video of the meeting can be found here. As a follow-up of the results that were drawn then, two events will be organized with Times Higher Education and QS on the topics of sustainability metrics in academic league tables. In order to accommodate as many time zones as possible, on each date there will be two sessions (same subject). Please feel free to join the session that best suits you:
