Supporting Economic Recovery

As a partnership, MEU has a strong role to play in the future prosperity of the region.  The immediate threat to that prosperity is the global coronavirus pandemic and we have responded by bringing together our collective expertise to tackle some of the huge challenges businesses and public-sector organisations such as the NHS are facing.

“Universities are perfectly placed to support public and private sector organisations, particularly during times of crisis.”
