The European Partners day will take place on 6 December in Martell House (1st floor) and will allow both Cranfield University and their European partners to explore how to strengthen our long-term collaborations, develop closer research partnerships, academic exchange and ongoing student support.
Our partners will also visit some of our unique, industrial-scale facilities and meet some of their students who joined Cranfield in 2019.
