Innovative Cases for WURI
- 1) Industrial applications rather than the traditional ways of counting research papers and lecture-type teaching;
- 2) Value-creating startups and entrepreneurship rather than a traditional focus on the number of jobs filled; and
- 3) Social responsibility, ethics, and integrity, rather than a focus on knowledge and skills just for material success.
We invite you to contribute to the WURI in the following three ways:
First, please send your innovative programs to be included as case studies of innovative universities, which will be distributed to all of the participants at this year’s conference on July 3. Please complete the template on the following page and send it to Dr. Moon by May 31, 2019. If you need an example of a university innovation program as a reference, you may use the sample case of INU’s Matrix College which is uploaded in the home page of the 2nd Conference of Hanseatic League of Universities at INU’s website (www.inu.ac.kr).
Second, please agree to include your university’s innovative program(s) as a candidate for the Top 100 WURI’20. Its results will be presented at the 3rd Conference of Hanseatic League of Universities or a similar event in 2020.
Third, please accept our invitation for you to be a member of the Evaluation Board of the WURI’20. This Board will be primarily composed of presidents or representatives of the universities submitting their innovative programs as entries to the Top 100 WURI’20. In due time, we will send you all the innovative programs of the universities which apply to WURI’20, and request you to rank the entries according to your judgment based on the three WURI focuses stated above.
