Third HEDQF Annual Conference


Breaking the Mould: Universities Supporting Industry, Enterprise and Innovation


When: 5 July 2017

Where: University of Sheffield

How to book:  https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/hedqf-third-annual-conference-tickets-34246196295


Government policy and capital funding is increasingly focussed on universities supporting enterprise, innovation and manufacturing, all the more so with BREXIT.  Join colleagues to hear how these changes are being embraced within universities and industry and what it means for the design of university campuses. 


Based in the “Diamond”, The University of Sheffield’s new £81 million undergraduate engineering building, the Conference will look at examples from the UK and abroad, including the University of Sheffield’s world-leading Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre, in partnership with 90 companies from Boeing, Rolls Royce, BAE systems and Aerospace to small local companies and the University of Falmouth’s new enterprise centres in Cornwall.   


Teaching is changing also, responding to competition and student demands.  Learn how the new campus for Northampton University is reshaping how teaching is provided to students, without lecture theatres, and, looking at non-traditional models, how the Dyson Institute of Engineering and Technology is developing its new private university in Malmesbury, Wiltshire.


The conference will close with a drinks reception in the new Faculty of Development and Society at Sheffield Hallam University.
