Higher Education at the Heart of Growth

The eleventh annual Apeldoorn: British-Dutch Dialogue Conference took place at the Museum of Science and Industry in Manchester (UK) from Sunday 11 to Tuesday 13 March 2012.

The theme of the 2012 Conference was Higher Education at the Heart of Growth. One hundred delegates came together for three days to share ideas on how higher education institutions in the UK and the Netherlands can work better with business and government to enable both countries to remain competitive, innovative and strategically agile during this period of immense economic uncertainty in Europe.

The conference programme included plenary sessions with expert speakers, focused group discussions, and options for site visits to relevant projects in and around Manchester.
