The event will consider the implications of Brexit in the South West in key policy areas such as: community relations, economic development, employment, healthcare, migration and the region's place in the world.
Aimed at stakeholders from the public, private and voluntary sectors, it will showcase recent research on the issue, including the iSPER Brexit Papers – a series of reports written by academics and aimed specifically at policy makers, as well as other related academic research.
Attendees will also discuss the opportunities and challenges of Brexit, how the South West could prepare for these, and the key priorities for future research and academic/stakeholder engagement on the issue.
The event is being organised by the University’s Institute for Social, Policy and Enterprise Research (iSPER) through its South West Brexit Lab.
A full programme will be made available nearer the time but the event will commence at 13:00, with a networking lunch, and run until 17:00.
