On Tuesday April 28th from 9.00 – 11.30am we will be running our second University Fair in the Daresbury Laboratory Atrium (1st Floor of the Reception Building). We believe this is the only event of its type in the NW. This is on the back of a very successful first event last year with over 100 attendees.

Regional universities are a key partner to technology companies bringing support and expertise in areas such as:

  • Student projects & placements
  • Student recruitment
  • Collaborative research & Knowledge Transfer Partnerships
  • Access to facilities

Therefore this event is specifically designed to help technology companies better understand the breadth of support available to them and how they can best take advantage of this. It will be done through two mechanisms:

  • Short session highlighting 4 company case studies through a combination of interview and expert panel
  • Exhibition enabling you to meet with representatives from 8 regional universities to explore potential areas of support and collaboration

Who should attend

As places are limited this event is only for technology companies, and not those organisations providing services, consultancy etc to them. However it will meet the needs of all types of technology companies irrespective of their size, sector and needs.


The event will take place in Daresbury Laboratory at Sci-Tech Daresbury. For directions please go to http://www.sci-techdaresbury.com/location. Visitor parking is available in the Daresbury Laboratory car park adjacent to the Reception building.
