The University of East Anglia (UEA) invites you to join us at Norwich Castle Keep for our forthcoming business breakfast, hosted by Vice-Chancellor, Prof David Richardson, on Thursday 6 June, 8:00-9:30am. 

A recent Universities UK report (November 2018) surveyed over 2000 UK adults on their knowledge of the impact of universities make, and it revealed the biggest knowledge gap is in relation to the positive civic impact universities have within their local communities. 

This highlights a need to better communicate this contribution and so Prof Richardson, will present examples of some of the important civic work UEA contributes to communities in our region, including access to sports and culture, volunteering, work with schools, and opportunities for collaboration. 

Prof Richardson will also announce the latest findings from an independent report analysing UEA’s economic contribution to the city and region.  

Guest speakers will share their experience of working with UEA and some of the exciting projects currently being undertaken that are connecting people and places, and helping our region grow. This will include Steve Miller, Assistant Director (Culture & Heritage) at Norfolk County Council, who will discuss the Castle Keep project 'Gateway to Medieval England', and UEA’s role in this.  

 

Date: Thursday 6 June 2019 

Time: 8:00am for 8:30am start (finish by 9:30am) 

Venue: Norwich Castle 

 

 

Networking and breakfast will preceed and follow presentations.
