Professor Dave Phoenix blogs for Huffington Post

17 Oct 2017

Professor Dave Phoenix, Chair of MillionPlus and Vice-Chancellor of London South Bank University, has blogged for Huffington post on the exciting collaboration between MillionPlus and Australia's Regional Universities Network.

He writes: "Based on shared ambitions and a recognition of the key role that our universities play in adding value to their local communities, MillionPlus and RUN will work to develop greater understanding of higher education, research and innovation policy in Australia and the UK and promote the contribution of universities to regional development.

"While there are vast differences in the weather and climate between the UK and Australia, higher education policy in the countries is broadly aligned. This is mirrored by the fact that MillionPlus and RUN universities share many of the same core principles. Our missions, while separated by thousands of miles geographically, are a close match."
