University innovation and research leaders talk about how they are working with Leicestershire businesses and their vision for the future.
From 12-1pm on Friday 10 September 2021 with University of Leicester, Loughborough University and De Montfort University.
Join us on 10 September 2021 for a free webinar and meet senior executive leaders from our three universities for an overview of their business, their vision for research and innovation and how they are making their ‘goldmine’ of resources available to advance research and innovation in Leicester and Leicestershire.
Our county is fortunate to have three top class universities with specific research specialisms aligned with, and delivering to, local economic strategies and priorities. Collectively, the three universities employ about 9,500 people, educate over 63,000 students from all over the world and pump about £100m directly and indirectly into the local economy.
The resources offered by the universities to businesses include cutting-edge research and innovation-led researchers and expertise, R&D based funded support, talented graduate interns and employees, training and professional skills development courses and access to dedicated facilities and technologies.
Please submit your questions in advance (if possible) to firstname.lastname@example.org or on the day. This will help us all to explore and understand how we can make the most of these research and innovation academic ‘goldmines’ on our doorstep in the city and county.
University Executive Leaders Panel:
