Harwell Campus provides local businesses with a welcome New Year boost

Back to Home

Harwell Campus is launching an exciting new business support initiative for businesses across Oxfordshire, building on the programme of events currently offered to campus organisations. This series of expert monthly ‘Connect Harwell Workshops’ will be delivered at the Campus by top business support companies.

The series of free Connect Harwell Workshops will provide quality, value-added business advice in an interactive setting. Delegates will have access to masterclasses in key business areas such as accounting, law, marketing, networking, negotiating, access to finance, data protection and other highly relevant business topics.

The launch of this highly anticipated new programme will include an update on future Campus plans, along with an introduction to the business support suppliers who will be presenting the first set of workshops in 2017. There will also be opportunities for guests to business network at the event.

Preferred business support suppliers who will be running the workshops include Bluestream Recruitment, Databasix, EY, MSC R&D, Richardsons, Royds Withy King and the Satellite Applications Catapult, with further names to be announced soon.

Stephen Ringler, Oxfordshire Space Cluster Development Manager at STFC and co-lead on the new Connect Harwell Workshops programme, said ‘We wanted to find a way to ensure that Harwell Campus organisations have the very best business support, with access to leading suppliers within their fields of expertise. The workshops will provide useful content on a pick and mix basis, enabling delegates to select the best fit for their own needs. We are anticipating that they will be extremely popular and the launch event is full.’
