The Enterprise Education Group for Impact and Research (EEGIR) was launched last September at a 2-day event at Weetwood Hall. EEGIR has been created as a sister-group to LEEN, focussed on research into enterprise education across the University of Leeds.
The first EEGIR official research seminar will take place next month as outlined below, this should be of interest building on Sir Tim Wilson’s policy talk at the M&S Archive in January. If you should be interested in attending and/or being added to the EEGIR event mailing list, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org by Wednesday 13th February.
