The Branch Chair, Elvira Uyarra, is a Reader, Innovation Policy & Strategy and Director, Manchester Institute of Innovation Research, University of Manchester.
“Having been a member of the RSA for over a decade, RSA Fellow since 2017 and having attended the conferences since my PhD days, I am honored to contribute to the life of the Association as Chair of the North West branch of the RSA.
As branch Chair I hope to improve the links between the North West region and the activities of the RSA and to connect regional policy actors to the broader academic debate in the RSA as well as to ensure that key lessons and insights from the region are shared with the wider community of scholars and practitioners.
Please feel free to contact me to discuss regional studies matters of interest to you.”
RSA First Pan-Northern Branches Conference – CANCELLED
A message from the Chair of the RSA North East Branch:
After careful considerations regarding the increasing number of Covid-19 infections in the UK, and in conjunction with both Northumbria University Research Office and the RSA Chief Executive, we decided to call the event off. This is a very sad decision for us, and not taken lightly given the large number of participants already registered to the event. However, as the spread of the virus is set to significantly expand across the country in the next two weeks, large social gatherings must be avoided. We are informing you about this unexpected outcome so that you can re-arrange your own schedules, and we will inform those who registered within today.
It is our objective to organise the event again later this year, possibly in October-November 2020; the RSA has already granted their full support. We will not change the programme and will keep reservations, but of course we will contact you in due course to confirm whether you will still be able to contribute to the event.
Once again, let me express all my gratitude and appreciation for your help and support in designing and developing the event. I am sure this opportunity won’t be missed, but simply delayed.
