Better Together?

22 September 2016, University of Reading

Bookings are now open for the UMG Annual Conference 2016.

In a climate of increasing drive towards greater partnership working, this year’s conference reviews the benefits, costs and challenges of working together. Focusing on recent civic and university partnerships and international working we will explore different case studies and debate the role of leadership, partner expectations and the practical realities of ensuring positive and sustainable outcomes.
