De Montfort University Leicester has signed up to be a Partner Affiliate of the NTDC.

At an event on Thursday the 8th of November, NTDC Deputy Director Natalie Kennerley presented Simon Bradbury, Pro Vice-Chancellor at DMU with their partner certificate (as pictured above).

The event celebrated the launch of the Technician Commitment at De Montfort University (DMU) who signed up to the Commitment in April 2018. It attracted members of DMUs technical community, who were also invited to participate in a number of informal workshops where they were able to share ideas about how the university can address each of the four themes of the Commitment.

The DMU launch event was opened and closed by Executive Board members of the University, emphasising the senior support for this important work at DMU.
