This special issue explores innovations in higher education that engage with societal transitions. We welcome scholarly contributions that engage with practices and theories that address the challenges of navigating complexity and change in these uncertain times. This call emphasises that universities cannot work in isolation but must engage collaboratively with other sectors of society. Importantly, it underscores a broader commitment to societal futures that goes beyond economic concerns, challenging the notion that the purpose of university education is to meet industry needs. What are the creative seeds of change emerging in higher education that challenge traditional university boundaries, foster partnerships with external stakeholders, and adopt a longer-term perspective?
