Posted on 10 October 2014

Keele University, in partnership with Staffordshire University, is set to launch the Under One Roof - Social Enterprise Conference on Tuesday 14th October 2014. The conference will start with an Opening Address from Vice-Chancellors, Professor Nick Foskett, Keele University, and Professor Michael Gunn, Staffordshire University.

The conference will take place in Keele Hall ballroom and will run from 9.30am - 4pm.

“Under One Roof” is a partnership project on Social Enterprise led by Keele University in conjunction with Staffordshire University.

“Under One Roof” is one of six Social Enterprise Thematic Clusters funded via a Government initiative offered by UnLtd (https://unltd.org.uk/).

This strategic launch event connects key partners who are passionate about Social Enterprise and its role in Staffordshire. It will address the following questions:

o   What is the national picture for Social Enterprise?

o   How are we responding to Social Enterprise in Staffordshire?

o   How we can all collaborate and champion Social Enterprise across the county?

o   How can organisations connect and share knowledge to raise the profile of Social Enterprise in Staffordshire?

We have a number of excellent speakers, including Professor Nick Foskett, Vice Chancellor from Keele University, and Professor Michael Gunn, Vice Chancellor from Staffordshire University, as well as representatives from UnLtd, Prime and the YMCA.


During the day there are two Social Enterprise workshops as well as the opportunity to meet new people and use these network opportunities to shape the future of Social Enterprise in Staffordshire.
