The UK's only independent think tank devoted to higher education.

Universities and employer engagement

  • 24 April 2010

There is increasing acknowledgment that business and industry have an important role to play in higher education – a recognition that is shared by government, employers and universities themselves. The discourse about this has changed radically in the last decade or so. Each party has different motivations, but the dialogue is real, and this seminar will explore its different dimensions, and what it is reasonable – and what it is wise – for each to expect of the other.

Speakers: Sam Laidlaw, Chief Executive of Centrica, and Chair of the CBI Higher Education Task Force; Professor Tim Wilson, Vice-Chancellor of the University of Hertfordshire
