Launching the Royal Docks Centre for Sustainability


Launching the Royal Docks Centre for Sustainability

As an anchor institution within the region, UEL is responding to the needs of the next industrial revolution by creating the Royal Docks Centre for Sustainability (RDCS), which will be a regional hatchery for innovation and enterprise.

Spread across three floors, this centre, the RDCS will be a new space on the Docklands Campus that will be the catalyst for sustainable business, skills, and communities within the Royal Docks and the wider East London area. It will provide access to:

  • Affordable workspace and specialist facilities
  • Relevant academic/research expertise and a diverse talent pipeline
  • Impactful programmes to launch and grow businesses, and for professional development

The Centre will embed a culture of sustainability in everything we do with a commitment to support underrepresented groups and drive engagement between the University and East London.

Welcome to an extraordinary event that promises to inspire, educate, and connect you with the sustainability leaders of tomorrow. The Royal Docks Centre for Sustainability (RDCS) is thrilled to invite you to the first part of our grand launch.
