Keele Deal | Recovery

Keele University will be shortly launching Keele Deal | Recovery which will build on its strong and diverse history of local collaborations, setting out significant commitments that will aid and strengthen local recovery following Covid-19.

Keele is committed to supporting its community, both locally and nationally, in the response to Covid-19. Staff, students and partners of Keele University have come together to help in these unique times, fulfilling the University’s civic duty and truly embracing its founding principles.

Keele Deal | Recovery will be launched in early 2021 and will build on some of the major areas of the University’s existing engagement to form a powerful and wide-ranging programme of contributions for the benefit of local communities and economies.

The Deal will encompass eight interrelated themes:

  • Innovation and Enterprise
  • Cultural Regeneration
  • Digital Futures
  • Employment and Skills
  • Food Security
  • Health and Wellbeing
  • Inclusion
  • Sustainability

The aim is to identify significant project and programme opportunities capable of achieving a major impact on local recovery and resilience. The themes are intentionally selective for the purpose of the Deal – for a locally-engaged university such as Keele, other local collaborations will continue to flourish around them.
