Here you will find events, workshops and networking opportunities for businesses provided by Arise, ARU and partners.

We run informal monthly coffee mornings at Arise Innovation Hubs. The aim of these sessions are to increase networking opportunities for business occupants; to encourage links and joint working between occupants and academics; to engage occupants with the various support services which the University can provide; and to provide a platform to showcase Arise and the wider university facilities to potential occupants and the wider Chelmsford and Harlow business community.
