Cambridge Service Week

Cambridge Service Week is a series of events hosted by the Cambridge Service Alliance to bring together leading academics, industrialists and policy-makers to address the evolving challenges facing service education, research, practice and policy. 

Cambridge Service Week 2017

The dates for Cambridge Service Week 2017 are as follows:

  • 5-6 October 2017 - The Academic Conference, IfM, Cambridge
  • 10 October 2017 - Industry Conference Day, Moller Centre, Cambridge
  • 11 October 2017 - Partners Day executive programme, Moller Centre, Cambridge

The theme for this year will be 'Bridging to “new” service technology'. At this event the speakers will be examining not only the technologies important for service delivery, but will be looking at what needs to be done in the short term to enable your organisation to be ready for these technologies. They will give examples of digital service strategy and will show how they create value through technology today and plan to do so in the future.
