The twin shocks of COVID-19 and Brexit, coupled with structural changes driven by automation and the transition to net-zero, demand an unprecedented response in raising productivity, boosting reskilling, and combating inequality. As drivers of social mobility, business innovation, regional growth and global partnership, universities can be a lynchpin in the UK’s efforts to level-up domestically and thrive internationally.

Join us as we discuss how to position universities at the centre of the CBI’s vision for an inclusive and internationally competitive economy.

Attend this event and you will:

  • Hear from Lord Karan Bilimoria CBE DL, President, CBI on our new economic vision and CBI ambitions for recovery and renewal.
  • Shape CBI thinking on the role of universities in driving the economic vision
  • Engage with CBI policy teams on key areas of reform such as the Skills for Jobs White Paper and R&D roadmap
  • Feedback on challenges and concerns from within the sector and how the CBI can support
  • Gain insights from peers about their practices and lessons learned.
