Geneva, March 7, 2017: F1 racing legend and Indy 500 champion, Emerson Fittipaldi, unveiled his dream track car, the much-anticipated Fittipaldi EF7 Vision Gran Turismo by Pininfarina, at the Geneva Motor Show today.

The ultra-light, all carbon fiber supercar fuses the vision of F1 and Indy Car racing champion Fittipaldi, iconic Italian design company Pininfarina and race-bred German engineering firm HWA AG, and fulfills Fittipaldi’s dream to produce a car with fierce track-racing capabilities, for drivers of all skill levels.

“I have tried for years to explain to others what it truly feels like to be behind the steering wheel of a championship racecar. There is adrenaline and elation all rolled into an awe-inspiring inner fulfillment that leaves you craving for more. This is what our dream team created in the EF7 Vision Gran Turismo by Pininfarina,” said Fittipaldi of the first car to be released under the Fittipaldi Motors marque.

Revealing a commandingly sleek design underscored by an extraordinary power-to-weight ratio, the supercar’s design theme finds astounding aerodynamic expression in the vehicle’s flowing, aggressive lines and assertive yet incredibly beautiful and pure design work.

Created in 2004, the UNESCO Creative Cities Network (UCCN) fosters international cooperation with and between cities that have identified creativity as a strategic driver and enabler for sustainable urban regeneration and development.

Today the Network brings together 116 cities from 54 countries, working towards common objectives: placing creativity and cultural industries at the core of local development plans, and actively cooperating through inter-city partnerships at the international level.

The UCCN is a flagship programme of UNESCO for the implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) of the 2030 Agenda, and the New Urban Agenda, at the local level.

UNESCO has invited cities worldwide, who are interested in joining the Network, to submit their applications using the official 2017 Application Form. Applications must be received by UNESCO Secretariat no later than 16 June 2017, midnight CET. Applications received after this deadline will not be evaluated.

Following the evaluation process carried out by internal and external consultations with independent experts and the member cities of the Network, the Director-General of UNESCO would designate the new UNESCO Creative Cities and the announcement of the Creative Cities designated in 2017 will be published on the UNESCO website on 31 October 2017.

Montreal Replaces Paris as World's Best Student City

QS Best Student Cities

LONDON, February 15, 2017 — Montreal, Canada, has topped the QS Best Student Cities Rankings 2017.

Montreal’s success is the latest of a series of propitious signs for a city beginning to escape a period of economic stagnation, following positive growth forecasts for 2017, and the recent announcement of its selection as the ‘World’s Most Intelligent City’. Its first-place ranking is also the highlight of a series of positive performances from Canadian cities.

Paris drops to second place, receiving reduced rank for Affordability and Desirability.

While London rises from fifth place to third place suggesting that UK cities remain excellent study destinations in the face of Brexit, with rises in QS’s Affordability indicator a major contributor to all eight of its ranked cities improving their rank.

Affordability issues adversely affect American cities: though Boston places eighth, ten of its twelve ranked cities drop.

Australia’s high cost-of-living and tuition fees are proving disadvantageous: all of its seven ranked cities drop, with Sydney plummeting from fourth to thirteenth, and Melbourne falling from second to fifth.

Seoul is Asia’s best student city, rising to 4th, followed by Tokyo (7th) , Hong Kong (11th) and Singapore (14th).

Berlin rises to 6th; while Munich (9th) and Vancouver (10th) complete the top 10.

For the first time, two cities from India, Mumbai and New Delhi, get included in the World’s Best Student Cities.

This year’s ranking features a ‘Student View’ indicator for the first time.

Over 18,000 students responded to QS’s inaugural survey for this ranking, providing input about their own student experiences, and, for prospective students, the relative desirability of a city.

"Most International" Universities in the World Today

International Universities

The institutions with the strongest global connections have a ‘cultural disposition’ to think beyond borders.

Times Higher Education (THE) has ranked the world’s “most international” universities.

The ranking is drawn largely from the “international outlook” pillar of the THE World University Rankings 2016-17, which covers international staff, students and co-authors. However, it also includes a measure of universities’ international reputations, taken from THE’s annual Academic Reputation Survey.

A striking feature of the upper reaches of the 150-institution table is the prominence of universities from relatively small, export-reliant countries, where English is an official language or is widely spoken.

The ranking is led by two Swiss universities: ETH Zurich - Swiss Federal Institute of Technology Zurich; and the Ecole Polytechnique Federale de Lausanne. Of all the countries in the ranking, the Swiss representatives also have the greatest average proportion of international staff and internationally co-authored publications: both 62 per cent.

• ETH Zurich (Swiss Federal Institute of Technology, Zurich) has more than 18,000 students from over 120 countries and is the top university in continental Europe. It boasts Albert Einstein as one of its most notable alumni.

Next in the ranking are the University of Hong Kong and the National University of Singapore. THE data scientist Billy Wong says that this may reflect the fact that nations such as Hong Kong, Singapore and Switzerland are all “big, global trading hubs”, conditioned to look beyond their borders for personnel and ideas.

Below the top four is a glut of institutions from the UK, Australia and Canada: prominent destinations for international students and scholars because of their prestigious universities and their use of English, the global lingua franca. The UK has 13 institutions in the 150, led by Imperial College London at number five. The University of Oxford, the University of Cambridge, University College London and the London School of Economics also make the top 10.

The US is less prominent in this ranking than it usually is in international league tables, possibly reflecting the fact that its size makes it less reliant on immigration to supply it with top student and academic talent. There is only one US institution in the top 30: the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, at number 22. Harvard University (sixth in the overall THE World University Rankings 2016‑17) is 33rd, Stanford (third) is 36th and the California Institute of Technology (second) is 52nd. However, US institutions are still the most numerous in the international ranking, accounting for 64 places.

THE’s Wong thinks that internationalisation activities can boost a university’s global reputation, which has a lot of knock-on impacts. “If they can have more international collaboration and become better known internationally, that can help them in areas such as student recruitment, academic recruitment, attracting international funding and so on,” he says.

Following is the Times Higher Education (THE) Ranking of the World’s “Most International” Universities 2017

Rank — Institution — Country — Overall Score

  1. ETH Zurich — Switzerland — 97.1
  2. Ecole Polytechnique Federale de Lausanne — Switzerland — 96.7
  3. University of Hong Kong — Hong Kong — 96.5
  4. National University of Singapore — Singapore — 96
  5. Imperial College London — United Kingdom — 95.2
  6. University of Oxford — United Kingdom — 94.3
  7. Australian National University — Australia — 93
  8. University of Cambridge — United Kingdom — 92.8
  9. University College London — United Kingdom — 92.2
  10. London School of Economics and Political Science — United Kingdom — 92
  11. King’s College London — United Kingdom — 91.9
  12. University of British Columbia — Canada — 90.2

Autonomy to Educational Institutes in India

College, Mumbai, India

It is reputed for producing luminaries like Bal Gangadhar Tilak, Bhim Rao Ambedkar, Badruddin Tyabji, Pherozshah Mehta, Jamshedji Tata, and illustrious professors like Dadabhai Naoroji.

The University Grants Commission (UGC) of India has implemented a scheme of “Autonomous Colleges” with a view to bring in quality reforms in higher education. The Scheme of Autonomous Colleges offers academic and operative freedom to the Colleges. The autonomy so awarded under the scheme enables a College to determine and prescribe its own courses of study and syllabi and restructure and redesign the courses to suit local needs and to devise innovative methods of teaching, examination and evaluation.

The scheme of Autonomous Colleges is open for all Colleges. Any number of Colleges currently under a University can apply for award of “Autonomous Status” to UGC under this scheme.

This information was given by India’s Minister of State for Human Resource Development, Dr. Mahendra Nath Pandey, today.

• Meanwhile, India’s Prime Minister, Narendra Modi, has made an appeal to universities in the country to aspire to be among the top 100 globally. There is no Indian university among the world’s top 100 universities, Modi said, adding, we feel “ashamed”.

“I invite 10 public and 10 private universities to come forward and take a pledge to make a place for themselves in the top 100 universities of the world. “Those who will come forward will get special economic assistance. They will be given relaxation from seeking various approvals. There will be an open field for them,” he promised.

Ambani, Chairman and Managing Director, Reliance Industries, India, “Preparing for the Fourth Industrial Revolution” Session at the World Economic Forum in Davos, January 17, 2017.

Davos-Klosters, Switzerland - January 20, 2017 — The accelerating pace of change driven by emerging technologies threatens to create wider income and opportunity gaps, warned business and technology leaders in a session on preparing for the Fourth Industrial Revolution on the opening day of the World Economic Forum Annual Meeting. “We are at a point where it is possible that technological development can accelerate and increase digital refugees,” warned Marc R. Benioff, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Salesforce in the US. Added Vishal Sikka, Chief Executive Officer of Infosys in the US: “We have to put in an extra effort so that we don’t create a bigger society of have-nots. That means a deep commitment to education and to addressing the displacements.”

The key to preparing for the Fourth Industrial Revolution lies in the technologies themselves, argued Mukesh D. Ambani, Chairman and Managing Director of Reliance Industries in India. “These technologies really are all-inclusive and will benefit all. In a sense they are great equalizers.” The rapid growth of e-commerce and digital cash in India is an example, he observed. “And the fastest way to transmit education in a big country like India is through technology.” Making these technologies inclusive will require designing them so that they benefit everybody and not just a few, Sikka said. “That requires empathy. I’ve always wondered why every company isn’t a technology company.”

Focusing on education and promoting innovation are not new solutions to the challenges of inequality and marginalization. “Education and entrepreneurship are the answers,” Sikka stressed. “We just haven’t been doing enough of it.” And what is required are fresh approaches or new models shaped through debate and collaboration among all stakeholders, Benioff said. He proposed that CEOs each adopt a public school. For initiatives to be effective will require building trust and articulating a vision, explained Mary Barra, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of the General Motors Company in the US. “You need to be incredibly transparent for people to have trust.”

To prepare for the disruptions of the Fourth Industrial Revolution, leaders will require radar to pick up on displacement and discontent and a compass to set the values and vision needed to succeed, Ngaire Woods, Dean of the Blavatnik School of Government at the University of Oxford in the UK, told participants. To weather the challenges will require more collaboration among countries, said Shu Yinbiao, Chairman of the State Grid Corporation of China. “Globalization is inevitable and is good for the development of the global economy. We will need more international cooperation.”

The 47th World Economic Forum Annual Meeting is taking place on 17-20 January in Davos-Klosters, Switzerland, under the theme Responsive and Responsible Leadership. More than 3,000 participants from nearly 100 countries are participating in over 400 sessions.

The Co-Chairs taking a principal role in shaping the discussion at the meeting are:

  • Frans van Houten, President and Chief Executive Officer, Royal Philips, Netherlands.
  • Brian Moynihan, Chairman of the Board and Chief Executive Officer, Bank of America Corporation, USA.
  • Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy, Documentary Filmmaker, SOC Films, Pakistan.
  • Helle Thorning-Schmidt, Chief Executive Officer, Save the Children International, United Kingdom.
  • Meg Whitman, President and Chief Executive Officer, Hewlett Packard Enterprise, USA.

Times Higher Education Academic Reputation Survey 2017

Academic Reputation Survey

Leading academics from across the world are being invited to help Times Higher Education (THE) develop unique new insights into the global teaching and research landscape by highlighting the most prestigious institutions in their field.

THE has launched its 2017 Academic Reputation Survey, which asks published scholars to outline which universities they perceive to be the best for teaching and research in their specialist discipline.

Each respondent is asked to identify institutions worldwide and in their own country and will be representing many of their peers from their fields and their nation.

The survey results will make up two of the 13 performance indicators used to create the THE World University Rankings 2017-18, and related regional rankings, and will form the basis of the “THE World Reputation Rankings”.

The survey, run in partnership with Elsevier, is invitation-only to ensure a representative statistical sample. It is available in 15 languages, and to ensure a fair and balanced response, it is distributed using United Nations data on the geographical distribution of researchers globally. Universities cannot nominate respondents and individuals are not able to volunteer to take part.
