Loughborough University London Dean at Future Cities Forum
The Dean of Loughborough University London will be presenting at the Future Cities Forum in London today (Monday 6 March).
The Future Cities Forum was created in 2016 to debate best practice in urban investment development and regeneration.
Professor Mike Caine will be talking about the impact the London campus has had on the regeneration of the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park and the local economy.
Speaking about the event, he said: “We are proud to be based at the home of the iconic London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games, and I look forward to sharing how we continue to engage with the community on the Park to drive forward creativity and entrepreneurship across the city.”
Loughborough University London is located on the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, within a new innovation quarter known as Here East. The Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park was created as the base for the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games. Now, the Park is an ambitious and thriving innovation quarter that is driving growth across London and the rest of the nation.
Professor Mike Caine will be on a panel with one of the UK’s top city regeneration investors, Laura Mason. Director of Direct Investments and Head of Urban Regeneration and Energy at Legal & General Capital (LGC), Laura has generated over £2.4bn worth of investment into UK regeneration projects.
