Engaged universities must address the Grand Challenges of the 21st century. New forms of collaboration are essential if we are to find ways of tackling the huge societal challenges the future will bring.

Will is Principal of Hertford College Oxford, co-founder of the Big Innovation Centre and non-executive director of the Satellite Applications Catapult. He has chaired two commissions for the UK government, on Fair Pay for the Coalition and the Creative Industries for the Blair government, and was rapporteur of the Kok Commission's inquiry into shaping the EU’s knowledge economy in 2005. He chaired an independent commission on university fees between 2012 and 2015.

He has written a number of best-selling books on political economy and business, notably the ‘State We’re In’, ‘the World We’re In’, ‘the Writing on the Wall’ (on China), ‘Them and Us’ and more recently, with Andrew Adonis, Saving Britain.
