Welcome to the website for the New Institutional Imperatives (nii) seminar series.
This seminar series provided a forum for academics and practitioners to debate the social, economic, and political imperatives facing Higher Education, and specifically the Third Mission. The seminars explored what the emergence and formalisation of the Third Mission has meant for contemporary universities and its prospects. With universities cited as the engines of today's knowledge society there is an ongoing need to develop a more nuanced and critical understanding by advancing research agendas and sharing of best practice. This website provides details of the seminars held.
