Brunel University – September 17, 2014
Innovation is central to economic success, and it’s something West London has a grand history in. Nowhere is this more keenly seen that at Brunel University, where innovation – and the commercialisation of that innovation – runs through the DNA. Come and see how the education sector works with business to grow wealth and create jobs.
The event includes a lively series of brief presentations from some of the today’s leading innovators, including speakers from –
Bubblegum; Cathedral Group; Charlie Bigham’s; IBB; Grainger and Worrall;
Jaguar Land Rover; Petra Technology; Ptech; Sustainable Maritime Solutions;
as well as Jane Milton; Sir Eric Peacock; James Tooze … and more besides!
Organised around four themes, Place West London is an energising series of events – a mix of keynote speeches, discussion panels and focussed workshops, linked with fabulous networking opportunities.
It follows four broad themes:
People – will the workforce be fit for the future? What training and skills provision do we need to ensure a competitive workforce?
Places – what are the visions and plans for regeneration and development, and how can they be realised?
Infrastructure – what needs to happen to transport and social infrastructure to keep the West London economy running?
Economy – what are the key growth sectors, and how can they be nurtured?
