UOW is hosting the next University Global Partnership Network (UGPN) conference in 2020: March 30- April 01, chaired by the DVCR&I, Professor Jennifer Martin.

The UGPN was initiated in 2011 with an aim to create a foundation for international collaboration enabling academics and students from some of the world’s top universities to work together on issues of global importance.
