Conference Overview

Higher education institutions are crucial to economic growth – that was one of the key messages taken from the Cambridgeshire & Peterborough Economic Growth Conference which was held in December. The ongoing developments in the cities Universities are set to attract new students from the UK and overseas to the region, and educate them in state-of-the-art facilities to generate the skilled workers of tomorrow. We’re looking forward to hearing from:

  • Helen Valentine; Deputy Vice-Chancellor and Sandy Lynam; Director of Estates & Facilities Services at Anglia Ruskin University. They’ll be sharing a joint presentation into the developments happening across their Cambridgeshire campuses. Projects include the School of Medicine, a £20m project at the Chelmsford Campus which will become the Essex’s first Medical School.
  • Nicky Robert; Endowment Manager at Gonville & Caius University. Nicky will be sharing further details of their development plans and ongoing projects.
  • Heather Topel; Project Director of the North West Cambridge Development at University of Cambridge. The huge North West development and Eddington project will be the key topic points discussed by Heather who’ll look to update everyone on the scheme and how they’re leading the way across the region with renewables and more forward-thinking.

We hope to be in a position to announce additional speakers soon.
