The University of East London opened its doors to celebrate the positive impact staff and students make in our communities locally and globally.
The Royal Docks Festival of Innovation and Enterprise, hosted on the University of East London's Docklands campus, included fun-filled activities and showcases including an escape room, a Crystal Maze experience, live entertainment, virtual reality, career advice, and an exciting global food and drink market.
Professor Amanda Broderick, the University's vice-chancellor and president, said, "The festival was a wonderful opportunity to open our doors to our neighbours in Newham and celebrate the progress we have made, particularly the continued investment in our wonderful Dockside campus.
"East London has a proud history as a place of industry and innovation - which is at the heart of today's festival. It was an opportunity to celebrate the significant contribution UEL makes to the area and globally."
As part of the festivities, the University hosted the annual Vice Chancellor and President Awards, recognising and celebrating success across all areas of the University.
Professor Broderick added, "The winners of the VC&P Awards display how embedded innovation and enterprise is in our culture with our staff always striving to make a positive impact on those around them."
