Happy New Year from Community Partnerships

Happy New Year to you all!

We are back in the swing of things here on the Community Partnerships team and are looking forward to the year ahead which looks to be an exciting one for Community Partnerships.

Coming up this month is the deadline for applications for The Community Partnerships Award a new category at the 2011 Excellence in Knowledge Transfer Awards at the University of Bradford. We are really excited to see this new category recognising the importance of community/university partnerships as a method of knowledge transfer.

We will also have a series of 4 public lectures coming up over the first half of the year which will be entitled Bradford Debates… with each one addressing challenges relevant to the district.

We are particularly excited that the British Science Festival is coming to Bradford in September 2011 and we are looking at ways to ensure our communities are engaged with the programme.

Lots to look forward to and we will keep you posted on how they develop throughout the year.

2011 will certainly be an interesting time in Higher Education it will be interesting to see how the sector has changed at this time next year!
