The Future of the High Street Virtual Study Group

7 March 2024

Innovate UK Business Connect is hosting an online 3-day Virtual Study Group (VSG) on the general theme of the future of the high street from 21-23 May 2024.

Many town centre high streets have been in decline for decades leaving them with boarded-up shops, the absence of local traders, and few shoppers due to their migration to out-of-town shopping malls. In this online study group, we will focus on the application of mathematical sciences to explore how regeneration could be catalysed. For more information or to get involved, please contact Dr Dawn Geatches, Knowledge Transfer Manager – Mathematical Sciences, at Innovate UK Business Connect by emailing .

V-KEMS and the VSGs have won the prestigious PraxisAuril KE Award and is an excellent initiative. This event is being supported by the KE Hub. Registration is now open, to register please follow this link here.
