In conversation with Ken Clarke MP and Lord Patten: The EU referendum, British universities and the future of the country.
In the week that we mark Europe Day, an annual celebration of peace and unity in Europe, we invite you to join us to hear Ken Clarke MP, Professor of Science and Society and Emeritus Professor of Fertility Studies at Imperial College London, Lord Robert Winston and University of Oxford Chancellor Lord Patten discuss the EU referendum, its implications for British universities and the future of the country.
Ken Clarke and Chris Patten bring with them a wealth of leadership and experience on the UK and global stage. Ken Clarke served as Chancellor of the Exchequer from 1993-1997. He has also held a number of other important positions in government, including secretary of state for health, home secretary and secretary of state for education.
Lord Winston is Professor of Science and Society and Emeritus Professor of Fertility Studies at Imperial College London. In the 1970s he developed gynaecological surgical techniques that improved fertility treatments. He later pioneered new treatments to improve in vitro fertilisation (IVF) and developed pre-implantation diagnosis. He now runs a research programme at the Institute of Reproductive and Developmental Biology at Imperial College that aims to improve human transplantation.
Lord Patten has been Chancellor of the University of Oxford since 2003. As the Former Governor of Hong Kong and European Commissioner for External Relations, he has played a key role in international diplomacy. In the UK, he was first elected as an MP in 1979 and served in government for 18 years, taking on various Cabinet and ministerial positions including overseas development.
This important discussion will take place on Tuesday 10 May from 18.00-19.30 in the Tuke Theatre at Regent’s University London. The event will be opened by Professor Aldwyn Cooper, Vice-Chancellor and Chief Executive of Regent’s University London. A drinks reception will take place after the event.
