From Mid-September through December 2014 the re:centre at the University of Bradford is providing Yorkshire and Humber’s manufacturing community an opportunity to be involved with a game-changing programme of events and business support.
The re:school is a fully ERDF funded programme of business support for owners of small and medium sized manufacturing businesses based in Yorkshire and Humber, excluding South Yorkshire.
Developed by a team of academic and private sector experts, this is an opportunity for business owners and managers to embed new concepts in business management, planning, resource efficiency and environmental streamlining into their existing business practices.
Centered on the concept of ‘The Circular Economy’ – the re-thinking of traditional manufacturing models for a post-depression age – this unique programme of events and mentoring encompasses many new concepts in business management.
The normal thinking for many everyday business issues has been reinvented. Topics to be covered in the event programme will include:
- Growth and Innovation in Textiles
- Reshaping Thinking on Urban Development
- Creating Value From Waste
- Saving and Making Energy
- Innovations in Sales Technique
- Leadership and Management
- 10 Routes to a Competitive Advantage
- Efficient Project Management for Manufacturing Businesses
- Practical Export Advice in an Ever-Changing World
Full information about the event programme can be found on the re:centre website
There is also an opportunity for eligible manufacturing businesses to work with the re:school team on a 1-2-1 basis where the requirements of the business owner necessitate individual support.
The re:centre is hosting an ‘Introducing The Circular Economy’ event on Wednesday 8th October, where Peter Hopkinson – Professor of Innovation and Environmental Strategy, will introduce the concepts of The Circular Economy. To book a seat on this limited availability event click here
This is an incredible opportunity to plug your business into the future thinking on manufacturing business models.

The Centre has also received funding from the Higher Education Funding Council for England (HEFCE) and University of Bradford.
