Opening the door to business

Delegates from a wide variety of organisations came to Nottingham Trent University on Wednesday 30 April to a Showcase event highlighting the many business services on offer.

It's a great opportunity to see some of the practical ways we can help boost any business.

Dr. Jeremy Hague, Head of Business Development

Nottingham Trent University (NTU) held a Showcase event on Wednesday 30 April to demonstrate the many business services on offer.

Delegates from a wide variety of organisations came to look around the exhibition and meet researchers, lecturers and students from across the University. Dedicated Business Development Managers were on hand to assess visitors' business needs and help identify solutions.

The Showcase provided a great opportunity to learn more about graduate recruitment and student placements, short courses and postgraduate degrees, and some of the real-world research and technical expertise on offer. NTU's Future Factory, demonstrated some of ways they have helped business in the region adopt more sustainable ways of doing business. There were also tours of the Virtual Reality Lab and 3D printing equipment, which proved to be very popular.

In March 2014, in response to The Witty Review, the government emphasised the importance of universities as 'drivers of economic growth'. NTU are committed to playing a key role in the economy, and to be the university of choice for business, industry and the professions in our areas of expertise.

Dr Jeremy Hague, Head of Business Development at NTU, said: "We're really keen to show that working with Nottingham Trent University can bring practical results to organisations of all sizes. Businesses don't always realise that the wealth of expertise on offer at the University is available to them as well as our students. The event was also an opportunity to promote the ERDF funded programmes we offer, which provide funded support to small and medium businesses in the East Midlands."
