One of the UK’s leading thinkers on universities, research, business and politics will be joining Sean Fielding for a SHEDTalk on 17 June 10am.

This is a unique opportunity to hear from one of the UK’s leading commentators on university business collaboration and knowledge exchange.

Graeme and Sean will discuss the challenges of funding and delivering research and knowledge exchange in an age of disruption with government facing many contradictory pressures.

Graeme will help us understand the undercurrents and tides of policy changes, the likely shape of research and knowledge exchange in a post-covid world and what today’s ambitious academics and professionals can do to build successful careers in this new environment.

Professor Graeme Reid is Chair of Science and Research Policy at University College London.  He is a member of the Council of Research England.

He has spent most of his career at the interface between science and Government, having worked in the Business Department, the Cabinet Office and HM Treasury and before moving to UCL.
