‘Universities Mean Business’ was an event held in Milton Keynes in December 2014. Representatives from the South East Midlands Universities (SEMU) addressed dozens of businesses at the Innovation for Business Conference & Marketplace event. An expert panel from Cranfield University, The Open University, The University of Northampton, University of Buckingham, University of Bedfordshire, Buckinghamshire New University and University Campus Milton Keynes (UCMK) showcased their potential to support businesses in becoming more competitive and innovative. The event, organised by the South East Midlands Local Enterprise Partnership (SEMLEP) through their Velocity Business Support programme, aimed to support innovation and economic growth and to explore the challenges of innovation and commercialism.
