Collaborative Conference 2016 date is revealed

The 12th University of Derby Annual Collaborative Conference date has been announced as the 5 July 2016 and will take place at the Devonshire Campus in Buxton, UK. Partners can start registering their interest by emailing us at and save the date in their diary. 

Delivering Transformational Relationships in a Time of Change’ is the proposed theme for this 12th Collaborative Conference which prepares to be the largest one ever. Partners will shortly receive a Save the Date communication from the University Strategic Partnerships Unit to ask you to not only reserve this day in your 2016 calendars, but also to provide feedback on the theme and input on the type of workshops you would wish to attend. New for 2016 will be the opportunity for our Collaborative Partners to have their own stands on the Dome floor and to invite their corporate partners.

The 2015 Collaborative Conference which was held on the 30 June 2015 at the same University of Derby Buxton Campus welcomed 143 staff and partners, and a whopping 86.4% of the guests who responded to our feedback questionnaire rated the Conference as very good or excellent. You can still read the Evaluation report‌ from the 2015 Conference, which contains useful feedback in preparation for the 2016 Conference.

Please look out for the 'Save the Date' email in a few weeks time.
