Here you will find events, workshops, webinars and networking opportunities for businesses provided by Arise, ARU and partners.

We run informal monthly coffee mornings at Arise Innovation Hubs. The aim of these sessions are to increase networking opportunities for business occupants; to encourage links and joint working between occupants and academics; to engage occupants with the various support services which the University can provide; and to provide a platform to showcase Arise and the wider university facilities to potential occupants and the wider Chelmsford and Harlow business community.

The session will highlight several projects that are underway and planned for the town, including the Kao Data Centre which houses the NVIDIA Cambridge-1 Supercomputer, the ambitious, digitally focused redevelopment of the Princess Alexandra Hospital, and the potential relocation of the UKHSA (formerly Public Health England). The session will consider how these and other local developments make Harlow an exciting prospect and a shrewd choice for innovators and entrepreneurs working at the intersection of data and health technology.

A full programme will be announced very shortly. In the meantime, secure your place today via the link below.
