The Research and Enterprise Conference was a one-day, internal event to bring together researchers and enterprise experts from across the university. After opening remarks by Professor Tara Dean (Pro-Vice-Chancellor, Research and Enterprise), the morning continued with keynote speakers with invaluable insight into the current external climate.
Colleagues outlined opportunities, challenges and plans for the research and enterprise community and the newly-appointed academic leads for the Brighton Futures articulated their aspirations for the development of each theme. The presentation of Research and Enterprise Excellence Awards were followed by an opportunity for networking.
Over 200 University of Brighton researchers and enterprise experts attended this meeting and were joined by invited guests from the University of Sussex and the University of Portsmouth along with key industry and partnership contacts.
