Workshop for regional Universities and stakeholders








27th February, University of Southampton, 3 to 4.30 pm

Building 28, Business School Deanery, Room 2049, Highfield campus

To publicise the successful outcomes of the EU funded Interreg IVC PLUSTEX project, the team from the University of Southampton (Winchester School of Art) is holding a workshop  to explore collaborative opportunities for the creative industries, in our region, arising from the project.

The purpose is to bring together representatives of regional universities involved in the creative industries, and specifically the textile and fashion sector, with local authorities and development agencies, to think about ways of implementing the findings of Plustex to benefit the retention of skilled graduates in the region.

The workshop will be facilitated by Charles Freeman of Creative Networks South, and hosted by Professor Paul Whittaker, Associate Dean Education, Faculty of Business and Law, and the Plustex project team.
