The Second HLU Conference took place in July 2019 on Incheon National University’s main campus in Songdo, one of the most beautiful and thriving cities in Korea. The conference was attended by around 200 presidents and representatives from more than 70 universities all over the world.
The Second Conference resulted in the following two meaningful outcomes.
First, HLU is open to all universities, colleges, schools and any institutions of higher education which seek innovation in research and education. There are no membership or annual fees up through the Third Conference (to be held in 2020).
Secondly, HLU agreed to launch a new university ranking called the “World’s Universities with Real Impact (WURI),” and to release the inaugural ranking of “Global Top 100 WURI’20” in May 2020 at the Third HLU Conference to be hosted by Northern Arizona University, USA.
