We are delighted to be hosting Geoff Mulgan, Chief Executive of Nesta, at University Campus Milton Keynes on the 5th March. This lecture is part of the two day MK Future Cities Conference.

Geoff is one of the UK’s foremost innovators and thinkers in the development of public policy, strategy and skills. Under his leadership Nesta moved out of the public sector to become a charity (in 2012), launched a range of new initiatives in investment, programmes and research, and has implemented a new strategy involving partnerships with other funders in the UK and internationally. Between 2004 and 2011 Geoff was the first CEO of the Young Foundation, before that he held roles in the UK Government including director of the Government's Strategy Unit and head of policy in the Prime Minister's office. Prior to this he was the founder and director of the think-tank Demos.

This public policy lecture will look at how a city can think better about its shared threats and opportunities, and will speak to our shared developments in Milton Keynes on smart cities and big data.
