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:
