The UK’s higher education sector is entering a new era – an era in which the use of collaboration technologies across departments is essential to attracting international students and staff, promoting growth, delivering remote/hybrid learning, and, ultimately, surviving.

To thrive in this ever-changing world, it’s about reimagining the very nature of higher education.
