Conservative Party Conference 2018: What do we need from universities? The HE funding review

1st October 2018 9/27/18 12:45-14:00

To complement EPI’s research programme, EPI have partnered with Sheffield Hallam University to co-host an open fringe panel event on the post-18 education and funding review. The event will build on the success of EPI’s conference, ‘Higher education funding: a sustainable future?’. The key points of discussion will be how to ensure the post-18 funding system is equitable, delivers the skills needed for economic growth, and remains world class.

This event follows on from the Sheffield Hallam University response to the HE funding review.

Members of the panel at this event include Lord Willetts (Resolution Foundation), Shakira Martin (NUS), Professor Sir Chris Husbands (Sheffield Hallam University) and Rachel Wolf (Public First). The panel will be chaired by Natalie Perera (Education Policy Institute). 

The Education Policy Institute and Sheffield Hallam University invite you to discuss these issues at a fringe discussion at Conservative Party Conference. We very much hope you will be able to join us.

This event will be held in the Secure Zone. It is an open fringe event but a conference pass will be required to access the venue.
