A one-day conference sponsored by Choose Cumbria partner the Samuel Lindow Foundation is to provide a high-level insight into the public benefits of large-scale projects in Cumbria.

The free to attend event at the UCLan Westlakes Campus near Whitehaven on Friday, July 1, will feature talks from major figures in businesses and the public sector on issues such as responsible public spending, supply chain initiatives, legacy building and public attitudes to infrastructure projects, such as the Moorside nuclear power plant in West Cumbria.

Rick Wylie, the Principal of the Samuel Lindow Foundation, said: “This conference will bring together experienced practitioners to provide important insights into the governance of mega-projects and public value and will provide a valuable opportunity to find out more about the huge potential of the projects planned for Cumbria over the next ten years.”

The conference, which will also be screened to a global audience online, will also incorporate the annual Samuel Lindow Foundation Fyfe Lecture, delivered by the highly respected Professor John Fyfe CBE.

The event is organised by UCLan’s Applied Policy Science Unit and funded by the Samuel Lindow Foundation as part of a five-year programme at the Westlakes campus.
