There is so much uncertainty on the horizon. How can we be working together to give ourselves the competitive edge? How will political change impact your institution? What is the role of challenger institutions in driving innovation in UK HE?

The 3rd annual University Alliance Summit will be an early opportunity for staff Alliance Universities to come together to reflect on the General Election and look to the year ahead.

We are pleased to confirm the programme to the Summit, including speakers, breakout sessions and pre-Summit fringe events – see below.

We look forward to seeing you there.
