Durham University, along with eight other Higher Education Institutions (HEI) partners and eight industrial partners, have embarked upon a £600k multi-partner research project, funded by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC). The project's aim is “to shape an activity inclusive culture in the EPS community (academic and beyond) in the North of England that supports, drives, and sustains greater equality for all, including traditionally under-represented groups (e.g., women, disabled people, LGBT+, and Black, Asian, and Minority Ethnic [BAME] researchers)”. EPSRC have committed £5.5m funding for 11 projects across the UK under the Inclusion Matters call.

The Launch event, hosted by the project's industry partner Siemens Gamesa will bring together delegates from the 16 partner HEI and Industry partners. This free event provides delegates with the opportunity to find out more about the project, how to sign up as a participant and to hear about the benefits of the activities in terms of personal development, and overall benefits to the partner organisations. As well as an excellent programme of speakers, there will be the opportunity to meet the workstream leads and discuss the project activities at our dedicated exhibition stations.
