The book Sustainable University of the Future: Re-Imagining Research and Higher Education discusses the requirements imposed by the rapid changes on higher education institutions that have pushed them to reconsider their traditional policies and plans and adopt more sustainable and modern programs and tools, which keep pace with transformations and anticipate the next challenges. The “Sustainable University of the Future,” must play its role in sustainable development, despite the current regional and international challenges. The universities in the new era need to be transformed to lead and adopt the new changes in the world. Furthermore, the adventure of Industry 4.0 is already assuming its rhythm in today’s business environment and agendas. Hence, it is critical that industries and universities join efforts and take an active role in preparing the next workforce and, simultaneously, support the current once-through lifelong learning and continuous training. By bringing together actors(businesses, universities, public authorities, and students) to address the existing gap in Higher Education and co-create innovative and multidisciplinary solutions adjusted to the current and upcoming challenges of a digital era.
