‘Ripping across the Atlantic: how the Eurozone crisis will affect the US’ - The Eurozone crisis has profound implications for the US, in at least three respects. US banks are closely intertwined with those of Europe. The impact of a banking shock would not stop at the east coast of the Atlantic. US companies have very large direct investments in Western Europe, and transatlantic trade is important to them. A prolonged slowdown in Europe would leave a mark on the US economy. Europe is a major strategic partner of the US, through NATO and a string of bilateral relationships. How might these relationships change in the years ahead?

The VandeLinde Lecture has been established to honour Professor David VandeLinde, who served with distinction as the fourth Vice Chancellor of the University of Warwick. An American citizen, David VandeLinde studied at Carnegie Mellon University and was Dean of the Engineering Faculty at Johns Hopkins University.

Sir Richard Lambert was appointed Chancellor of the University of Warwick on 19 March 2008. Sir Richard is the former Director-General of the Confederation of British Industry. He was Editor of the Financial Times 1991-2001 and during his 10 years in this role successfully launched the US version of the newspaper. Sir Richard was appointed as a member of the Bank of England’s Monetary Policy Committee, a position he held from Spring 2003 until Spring 2006. He was knighted in the 2011 New Year Honours for service to business.

The University of Warwick and New York University - with core strengths in applied engineering and a long history of successful relationships with business, Warwick is delighted to be in a consortium led by New York University, to develop a new applied sciences campus in New York to be called “The Center for Urban Science and Progress” (CUSP). We welcome the opportunity to make an impact on the economic development of New York City and to interact with businesses there.
