Paul Kehoe, Commissioner and CEO of Birmingham Airport along with Anita Bhalla, Commissioner and Chair of the Creative City Partnership will Chair the third hearing of the Chancellor's Comission into the future roles and impact of the University of Warwick in the Midlands region over the coming period.

The Commission has been established to consider the future roles of UoW in Coventry, Warwickshire and the wider Midlands; and to create a long term vision and strategies for delivering those roles. A key part of this process is convening five events - focused on Coventry, Warwickshire, local neighbourhoods, the Midlands, and national considerations, respectively.
