2010 World Universities Congress: What should be the new aims and responsibilities of universities within the framework of global issues?

20-24 October 2010, Çanakkale, Turkey

In October 2010, Çanakkale Onsekiz Mart University will be organising a World Universities Congress on the theme: "What should be the new aims and responsibilities of universities within the framework of global issues?"

The main responsibilities of universities around the world have traditionally been to offer education and training leading to a profession, to conduct scientific research, and to provide other services to the community. However, in a world where global issues are increasingly impacting on daily life, universities today have a duty to assume more responsibility in a wider field.
