Newton Fund Conference
21st October 2014

As part of the International Unit’s commitment to help keep the sector up to date with details of the Newton Fund, we are hosting a one day Conference on the Fund which will be held on the 21st October at the UUK offices in central London. 

The event will provide an opportunity to learn more about the Newton Fund, from its high level objectives to the type of activities it will support, as well as the requirements for participation.

Speakers will include senior representatives from BIS as well as each of the delivery partners in the UK.  The event will also include breakout sessions providing details of how the scheme will operate in individual countries.   The draft programme is displayed on the right hand side.   Full details of the event and how to register are also included below.

We anticipate that there will be extremely high demand for this event, so please book early to avoid disappointment as places are limited. We hope you will be able to attend.
