27 April 2009 | 4.30pm - 6.30pm | Seminar

Rupert Beckett Lecture Theatre

The theme for this year's Enterprise and Innovation Day is "Innovation and Cities", which explores the growth and development of innovation within city environments and how Leeds can maximise its opportunities.

Yorkshire Innovation has kindly sponsored our Innovation and Cities seminar event which takes place between 4.30pm and 6.30pm in the Rupert Beckett lecture theatre in the Michael Sadler building. This half day event is designed to showcase and celebrate projects that have made significant social impacts specifically in the faculties of Arts, ESSL, PVAC and Leeds University Business School. 

Keynote speaker, Dr Kjell Nordstrom, the 'enfant terrible' of the new world of business, will reflect on innovation and cities with a strategic focus on Leeds City Region and the role of Innovation City Leeds in catalysing change. His presentation will be followed by a panel discussion and networking.

We will also be displaying an exhibition of best practice case study examples of innovation, from universities across the Leeds City Region.

To reserve your place at the Innovation and Cities seminar please contact Jane Round, Enterprise and Innovation Office - j.round@leeds.ac.uk or by phone on 0113 343 0916.
