CSR

Andy is the relationship manager for Nexus in Leeds. Nexus is the Incubation Hub situated on the University of Leeds campus. This involves providing seminars and workshops to the tenants at Nexus and in the wider Leeds City Region, offering drop-in sessions to discuss Nexus’ tenants IP strategy and being on hand to provide guidance to the tenants on various IP issues, which is a complex and confusing area of law.

Andy has also run a summer internship programme for undergraduates at the University of Nottingham in both the chemistry team and the engineering team at HGF.
