The University of Leeds is set to become a partner of The Alan Turing Institute, the UK’s prestigious national institute for data science.

The University has seen a £12 million boost in research council awards during 2016/17 according to a Times Higher Education (THE) magazine analysis.

The University is to name a key building in its £96m investment in engineering and physical sciences in honour of one of Leeds’ most influential scientists.

The city of Leeds is celebrating a key phase in its bid to be European Capital of Culture in 2023.

Dr Martin Stow has been appointed as the Director of Nexus and will lead a programme to embed new approaches to nurturing and supporting innovation and enterprise across the University.
