ESRC Seminar Series Grant Awarded on New Imperatives of Higher Education Institutions

Dr Tim Vorley, Lecture in Entrepreneurship in the Management School, and member of the  Centre for Regional Economic and Enterprise Development (CREED) has recently received ESRC funding to host five seminars looking at the changing higher education landscape. The seminars series led by Dr Vorley will be hosted in collaboration with the colleagues at the University of Bristol and University of Leicester.

 The seminar series is a timely engagement with debates concerned with the socio-economic role played by universities both in the UK and abroad. With leading academics, policymakers and practitioners speaking at the seminars, they aim to make a timely contribution to this highly topical debate and serve as a forum for sharing good practice.  

 The five seminars, to be hosted between February 2011 and August 2012, will serve as the basis for extending research on higher education. With a combined academic-practitioner focus it is also hoped that the seminars will inform academic and policy research associated with the new institutional imperatives of Higher Education Institutions
