CIMR Debates in Public Policy return in the Summer term – join our first Debate on April 27th

The CIMR Debates in Public Policy series of lunchtime online seminars returns in the summer term 2022, with an exciting programme of events. We are delighted to introduce the first Debate in the series:

Endless Possibilities: What roles will universities play in new hybrid ways of creating inclusive entrepreneurship?

When: 27 April 2022, 13:00 — 14:30
Venue: Online

The international perspective of inclusive entrepreneurship underwent a significant shift from the real-world operations to digitalisation as the sector sought to overcome challenges and business disruption brought about by global lockdowns and subsequent restrictions. For those who were able to make this transition we have seen examples of alternative support mechanisms to ensure innovation and growth flourished within the virtual world. 

We ask, what are universities doing within this new space and change in direction? What has been learned from the challenges faced and what roles will they play in this new hybrid way of creating inclusive entrepreneurship? 

The debate will increase our understanding of this global shift and importantly add new perspectives on the role of universities and policy makers in supporting inclusive entrepreneurship going forward.
