The Atlas T3 International Conference


The T3 International Conference programme will consist of invited and selected papers emphasising transdisciplinary, transnational and transcultural global problems. Plenary sessions and keynote panels will be presented by prominent speakers.

During this conference, multicultural researchers, practitioners, and educators will share their experiences and thoughts concerning the impact diverse cultural backgrounds have on education. More specifically:

  • Global higher education revolution - how world university systems can collaborate more efficiently
  • Transnationalisation through information technology and exportation of education as a commodity
  • The potential for educational programs based on the transdisciplinary (TD) methodology and methods
  • Transdisciplinary research approaches for complex global issues
  • How to teach students innovation and collaboration skills, educating them broadly and preparing them for an increasingly transdisciplinary, collaborative, and global job market
  • Transdisciplinary education and preparation for the length of our life
  • New methodology in engineering education that is focused on teaching students transdisciplinary skills thereby allowing them to become creative and innovative engineers
  • Challenges to shift from disciplinary thinking to transdisciplinary thinking

The main theme of this conference is to understand the complex issues related to education and technological innovations. Two important workshops will be developed:

  1. International workshop on education and training models for the Fourth Industrial Revolution, and
  2. 3D printing in product design and development.
