Description

Breaking the Mould

Universities Supporting Industry, Enterprise and Innovation


The Third Annual Conference will be held at the University of Sheffield on 5th July 2017

UK Universities are again at a time of great change. The new Higher Education and Research Bill aims to improve the student experience, ensure that students receive value for money, allow more competition to universities and enhance the UK’s economy through increased productivity, research and innovation. Even before BREXIT, initiatives such as the Government’s 2014 Local Enterprise Partnerships and Enterprise Zones were encouraging universities, manufacturing, innovation and enterprise to work together. Post BREXIT and the General Election, this will be even more important.

HEDQF’s 2017 Annual Conference will look at how universities are designing their campuses and facilities in new ways for these new circumstances. Many universities have already been leading the way by breaking the mould. The follows on from the HEDQF’s very successful annual conference in 2016 at the University of the Arts, King’s Cross, London.

The conference will be based in the award-winning “Diamond”, The University of Sheffield’s new £81 million undergraduate engineering building, the university’s largest ever investment in teaching and learning, which opened in 2015 and provides a 21st-century environment for interdisciplinary teaching. 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. Other examples will examine how universities are responding in different ways, from the urban environment of London to the different environment of Cornwall and the Hive in Worcester – Europe’s first joint university and public library, while the University of Cardiff is proposing a new campus and science park and new campus for Northampton University is reshaping how teaching is provided to students, without lecture theatres and, looking at a non-traditional model, the Dyson Institute of Engineering and Technology, a new private university in Malmesbury, Wiltshire along with Dyson’s research campuses overseas.

There will be opportunities for questions and discussions throughout the conference.

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