University Alliance with University of Lincoln invites you to a parliamentary reception hosted by Roberta Blackman-Woods MP, Co-Chair of the All Party Parliamentary University Group.

We will be launching a major new research report exploring the emergence of employer-led STEM faculties in UK higher education. The research is part of the HEFCE-funded Catalyst project ‘Driving economic growth through employer engaged STEM provision‘.

You are invited to join us for afternoon tea, to hear from our panel of speakers and to meet with the universities and employers that are working together to secure the future of STEM provision and research in UK universities.

University Alliance brings together a group of universities with a common mission to make the difference to their cities and regions. We use our experience of providing high quality teaching and research with real world impact to shape higher education and research policy for the benefit of our students, businesses and civic partners. We innovate together, learn from each other and support every member to transform lives and deliver growth.


You can book your ticket here.

We hope you will be able to join us and look forward to seeing you on 13 October.

Afternoon tea will be served. If you have any dietary requirements please let us know.
