Will Britain’s major universities be left behind after the UK exits the European Union and will they lose students, staff and access to EU funds for research and development?
 
Professor Richard Greene, Pro-Vice Chancellor of Manchester Metropolitan University (MMU), will open a major debate on the issue at the third Educate North Conference, which is being held on April 27th in association with The Telegraph Media Group.
 
“This conference heard dire warnings in 2015 from academics petrified by a ‘No’ vote, now we are facing that reality it will be my role to take a hard and factual look at the consequences and the potential risks and threats facing a sector which is vital to the future of the country,” said Professor Greene.
