CaSE welcomes Canterbury Christ Church University as members

28 Apr 2015

Canterbury Christ Church is a modern university actively involved in public life, from its role in influencing national policy and practice – particularly in the areas of Education and Health – to addressing real-world complexities through its teaching and research. Its wealth of national and international partnerships highlight the University’s relevance to contemporary society and the critical role it plays in transforming the social, economic and cultural prosperity of communities and individual lives.

The University’s Vice-Chancellor and Principal, Professor Rama Thirunamachandran, commented on its decision to join:

“We are very pleased to join CaSE and its campaign for better policies and investment for science and engineering. Our University recognises the importance of regional and national investment in this area, through increased research funding and teaching.

“Canterbury Christ Church University holds the STEMNET contract for the Kent and Medway region and through this important partnership, activities and careers information linked to Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics are actively promoted in schools. The University also plays an important role in training teachers in STEM subjects across a range of postgraduate and undergraduate courses.”

Acting Director Naomi Weir says:

“We are delighted to welcome Canterbury Christ Church University as organisational members. Their focus on promoting the benefits of research to wider society and conveying its power to transform lives, strongly resonates with CaSE’s goals. We look forward to working with them to ensure that throughout the UK there is sustained investment and support for science and engineering.”
