Professor Debra Humphris, the University of Brighton’s Vice-Chancellor, said: “University staff and students have volunteered to help the NHS wherever they can and we now stand with our partners to do the same for businesses which have suffered greatly through this dreadful crisis.”

Jonathan Sharrock, Chief Executive at Coast to Capital said: “We are pleased to support the CENTRIM webinar series in collaboration with the University of Brighton and Business East Sussex. We are continuing a strong dialogue with partners on an economic recovery plan and I look forward to hearing updates from the upcoming events.”
