Book your place | Introducing the Horizons Institute

Join our next Leeds Conversations event as we introduce the new Horizons Institute.

Horizons institute

Global challenges require global solutions. But the solutions we seek are multi-dimensional – they require inclusive, blue-sky collaborations if we’re to stand any chance of ‘cracking the code’.

The Horizons Institute is an incubator for new ideas – it exists to support and foster truly innovative, early-stage collaborations between researchers and external stakeholders. Our purpose is to provide an arena for academics to come together and develop their skills and networks, building diverse teams designed to cut across traditional disciplinary boundaries.

What to expect

During the event, you will:

  • meet the new Horizons Institute team and hear about the pillars that underpin our activities – our four pillars are: our headline theme, challenge themes, Global Frontiers Academy and Partnerships for Education, Innovation and Societal Impact
  • hear from our challenge theme leads, who will be sharing the innovative approaches to their specific area, as part of our challenge themes pillar
  • find out how you can get involved in the Horizons Institute; and
  • have the opportunity to direct questions to the Horizons team and guest speakers. 

Join us to hear more about the institute, where we’re boldly going and how you can get involved through one or more of our four foundational pillars.

Don’t worry if you can’t attend the live event – a recording of the session will be shared shortly afterwards.  

Leeds Conversations is a series of events where colleagues can discover more about our key strategic priorities and activities from University leaders.
