SUNY - Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development Conference

power of sunysix big ideas


"What Works" Conference on Internationalization for Job Creation and Economic Growth:
Increasing Coherence of Government and System Policies at a Time of Global Crisis   

April 12-13, 2012

In keeping with the State University of New York’s strategic planning focus on leveraging the power of “systemness” across functional areas of the six big ideas, this event promoted discussion of innovation and job creation through the internationalization of higher education at the system level. SUNY Global and the Nelson A. Rockefeller Institute of Government at the University at Albany worked with the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) to examine the roles that multiple actors play together in tackling the effects of the global financial crisis and fostering recovery policies, especially job creation, innovation, and wealth generation.

This event was also part of the OECD What Works conference series. Discussions will examine the ways in which internationalization can be leveraged to support economic development in the 21st century. Creative and effective approaches will be highlighted against the urgency of implementing new strategies in a time of global economic crisis, with job creation, economic recovery policy and human capital development and, above all, innovation at the core of the discussion. The interplay between public policy, academia, and business and industry is key. Please follow the link to find more detail on the OECD What Works conference series: OECD What Works.
