Event Description

On 17th December 2015, we will be hosting a special event that celebrates the University’s engagement with Europe.  We’ll also be creating a buzz on campus throughout the day with a series of events, talks and traditional festive activities, including food and entertainment.

The event will be an opportunity to showcase Bournemouth University’s on-going research and engagements across Europe and to hear about the experiences of our students from Europe who are studying in Bournemouth and those who have travelled there as part of their degree. 

The event is also open to regional stakeholders from organisations and businesses across the wider area that have a particular interest in Europe as a result of operations, clients or relationships that they have on the continent.

Arrival is from 10 a.m. with the formal programme starting at 10:30 a.m. Further details and confirmation of our guest speaker will be published shortly.  The formal programme will be followed by an opportunity for informal networking and some traditional festive European food.

We are delighted that Nuno Almeida, Founder and CEO of, Nourish Care Systems, will be joining us as our guest speaker. Nuno is a serial entrepreneur with a track-record of building sustainable global technology ventures and is an advisor for the European Commission on matters related to innovation funding, primarily in health and social care technologies.

Staff from across BU will also be giving short insights into their recent and on-going work: 

  • Dr Philip Alford – The benefits of digitisation for small and medium enterprises
  • Melanie Gray – Media Brands: a European Perspective
  • Professor Bogdan Gabrys – A decade of BU’s European collaborations in the areas of data science, machine learning, computational intelligence and smart technologies
  • Dr Stephanie Schwandner-Sievers – Re-thinking post-war conflict resolution through gaming technology
  • Professor Dimitrios Buhalis European Commission sponsored eTourism at BU

There will also be a chance to hear from students from mainland Europe who are currently studying at BU about their experiences and why they chose Bournemouth.

This is a free event and parking on campus will also be available at no charge

We hope you can join us on the day.

With best regards,

Dr Sonal Minocha

Pro-Vice Chancellor (Global Engagement)
