Event description

Description

New Forms of Funding is a series of free to attend workshops developed by Universities UK, NHS Confederation and the Higher Education Funding Council for England with the support of the Local Government Association.

New Forms of Funding looks at a range of emerging forms of investment funding relevant to local anchor institutions such as combined/local authorities, universities, NHS organisations etc. As ‘risk-based’ opportunities, they will require local institutions to think and act very differently when compared to traditional grant regimes. Institutions providing the finance will identify the ingredients of a successful application and practical case studies will transfer best practice. The programme is supported by an online community of practice.

This workshop focuses on the use of different forms of loans.
