In his imagining of the future, “Thinking Beyond A-B-C”, Gordon Gee outlines three ways how universities and the private sector can collaborate during the next 20 years. Universities and industry should unite to handle the challenges that big data generates, the threats of climate change on our food supply and the shifts in energy production and consumption.
