Universities at the heart of growth

Apeldoorn Conference: From Sunday 11 to Tuesday 13 March 2012, one hundred delegates from the UK and the Netherlands came together in Manchester to share ideas on how higher education institutions can work better with business and government to promote growth and create jobs during this time of economic uncertainty in Europe.

For the UK and the Netherlands to remain leading world economies into the 21st century, our universities will be expected to produce increasing numbers of highly-skilled graduates with a clear understanding of the working world.

Libby Hackett, Director of University Alliance, gives her thoughts on this issue and speaks about discussions at the Apeldoorn Conference.
