Toñi Caro

Toñi Caro

Independent Evaluator and Chair of the QA Board

Antonia Caro-Gonzalez is based in Spain and has 25 years of experience in internationalisation in the research and innovation (R&I) field that have carved her innate ability to boost multi-stakeholders’ collaboration and ecosystem building. She is the author of several peer-reviewed publications on a diverse range of social issues related to internationalisation, higher education, societal impact and stakeholder engagement. She has pioneered a full R&I impact strategy that conveyed a concrete innovative range of sustainable development goals that have differentiated a middle-size non-research-intensive institution from other universities in Spain. She is also working with a fully digital university to experiment on the future of higher education in a hyper-digitalized world.

Some of the latest achievements are:
The publication of the book: Antonia Caro-Gonzalez (2023). “Transformative Governance for the Future: Navigating Profound Transitions”. Springer Cham. https://doi.org/10.1007/978-3-031-43132-6
