The Waterline Campaign brings together the University of Hull with Marketing Humber Bondholders to support the region’s transition to a zero-carbon economy.  It shows how the University’s key strategic projects and academic expertise are central to driving this transition.

Hosted across five days from 18 – 22 October, The Waterline Summit 2021 will demonstrate how we all have a part to play in the race to net-zero, with a key focus this year on connecting the Humber and its transformational multi-billion-pound projects to COP26 and beyond.

Once again, the Summit has attracted a number of high profile and influential speakers, including academics and students from the University:

Over the course of the week, there will be a variety of face-to-face, online and hybrid events, many of which are being hosted at the University’s Aura Innovation Centre.   The University is involved in a number of these events, including the following:
