Beyond COVID-19 – Developing university partnerships to support your SME for the future
In partnership with the RISE programme we are delighted to bring you a valuable insight into how best to maximise your relationship with the local University partners, Sheffield Hallam University and The University of Sheffield.
At this online event you will have chance to hear from the Employer Partnerships and Research teams from both institutions and make beneficial contacts to help support the needs of your business.
Learn more about the innovative ways a collaborative partnership can help you adapt and grow your business.
“Now more than ever, the University partners are wanting to reach out and support the local SME community as we navigate new ways of working during this difficult time. With a wealth of experience and established programmes that can specifically support SME’s, making connections between businesses and the HE sector has seen great results. Working with the SME’s who have used the RISE business support, it has been great to help them navigate what is available from both the universities, as there is so much available."
