Entrepreneurs helping communities through innovation
Andrew to co-host Second Science Summer School with Brian Cox
Posted at 11:00am 02 August, 2013
Building on Professor Cox’s ambition that Britain is the best place to ‘do science’, the Lower Lea Valley in East London presents an important opportunity and context to explore the relationship between science, education, business, and aspiration. There is a need for future developments in the Lower Lea Valley to build upon a rich history of science, engineering, and innovation. It is equally important to connect education, aspiration, and employment for local people into these burgeoning opportunities. Professor Cox and a representative from the Royal Society will lead a conversation with Andrew around these themes and the Siemens Crystal reception, which AMP is organising, at the end of the two day Science School, is an opportunity to continue this discussion.

Advocating that we "think more outside the box" as we prepare to exit the European Union, Andrew said: " Brexit is a real opportunity for new thinking about the opportunities now presenting themselves in a digitised world that exists outside traditional silos. To grasp it, we all need a real change of mindset, both in Europe and in this country".
