For some time I have wondered why the county council and the university don’t work closer together. In particular, I am keen to develop and share a common vision for Cambridgeshire so we are all pulling together.
The university is a significant organisation with an extremely strong brand internationally. Yesterday I had a meeting with Prof Sir Leszek Borysiewicz, the Vice-Chancellor and Jonathon Nicholls the registrar with Mark Lloyd in attendance. It was a really helpful meeting and it seems the first significant meeting of minds between our two organisations for some time.
We both took away a todo list and a commitment to work more closely together to attract investment and business to the whole of Cambridgeshire.
A significant milestone.
