UWL and Chiswick Park Enjoy-Work join forces to boost community development
The University of West London (UWL) and Chiswick Park Enjoy-Work have signed a Memorandum of Understanding to explore opportunities for strategic collaboration in areas of education, community and business development.
The agreement formalises the mutual interaction and new relationship between two major organisations in west London.
Chiswick Park is a 1.8 million sq. ft. business campus in west London, home to some of the world’s leading companies. It is managed by estate Management Company Enjoy Work, which proposes a regular programme of events and concierge services dedicated to over 9,000 guests working on site.
Professor Peter John, Vice-Chancellor of the University of West London said: ‘We are pleased to form this alliance with Chiswick Park. We are both committed to offering an enriching work environment and our joint expertise will increase the level of innovation and enterprise for the benefit of the community.’
Matt Coulson, CEO of Chiswick Park said: ‘This unique opportunity will add a distinctive academic offering to Chiswick Park. We house a total of 67 companies from different industries and countries, who will be able to benefit from the diverse prospects brought by our collaboration with the University of West London.'
Ranked the top modern university in London by the Times and Sunday Times Good University Guide 2018 and one of the top 50 UK universities in the Guardian University Guide 2019, UWL has recently invested over £150 million in cutting-edge equipment and facilities to deliver an outstanding student experience.
This year, new facilities include the Westmont Enterprise Hub, The Faringdon Centre for Non-Destructive Testing and the West London Food Innovation Laboratory, all of which links students, local businesses and UWL experts to drive innovation in the community.
