Event description

Description

New Forms of Funding is a series of free to attend workshops looking at a range of emerging forms of investment funding relevant to local anchor institutions e.g. combined/local authorities, universities, NHS organisations etc.

The programme is being developed by Universities UK, NHS Confederation and the Higher Education Funding Council for England and is being promoted by the Local Government Association.

The focus will be on various types of bonds, loan funds and integrated funding approaches for strategic infrastructures and sites. 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. .

This workshop focuses on the use of private, municipal and green bonds.
