Sell-out success for networking breakfast encouraging creative collaboration

A breakfast networking event aimed at encouraging collaboration between creative and cultural organisations and the University of Essex has proved so popular that all places have been snapped up a week in advance.

The event being staged at firstsite in Colchester on Thursday 28 November is designed to give businesses and organisations the chance to find out about collaborative funding opportunities to encourage engagement with expertise at the University, including Knowledge Transfer Partnerships, Internships and the Postgraduate Consultancy Service.

Michael Loveday, Chief Executive Officer from the Norwich Heritage Economic and Regeneration Trust (HEART), will provide an overview of his recent project HistOracle and highlight how HEART benefited from a Knowledge Transfer Partnership.

Jan Stringer, a Knowledge Transfer Partnership Adviser for the Technology Strategy Board, will then guide those attending through the features, benefits and funding available for companies interested in KTPs.
