The New University

Hay Festival 2014, 

Britain needs more scientists and engineers, but can our universities deliver? Current proposals for a new university in Hereford focus on employability and economic growth via a highly innovative ‘Liberal Sciences’ approach. If you’re a parent, a teacher, an employer or just interested in the future of education, jump start your day with this lively discussion. Usher is leading the campaign for the New University, Thomas is Vice Chancellor of Bristol University, Landsman is Executive Director of Tata and Willetts is Minister for Universities.
Chaired by Hereford MP Jesse Norman.
