Haydn Green Institute for Innovation and Entrepreneurship

A University Enterprise Zone

The University of Nottingham is one of four University Enterprise Zones (UEZs) across England. UEZs aim to encourage universities to strengthen their roles as strategic partners in local growth and to stimulate development of incubator space for small businesses. 

The Haydn Green Institute for Innovation and Entrepreneurship supports these aims with its work and research around the development of enterprise and entrepreneurial skills, innovation and understanding of the commercialisation of research.

Haydn Green Institute Special Seminar - 19th May 2015
