Harold Wilson Lecture Series

In 2016, as part of the University's 50th Anniversary, in honour of our first Chancellor, the Prime Minister, Lord Harold Wilson of Rievaulx, and of his great foresight in setting up a technology university such as Bradford, we initiated the prestigious Harold Wilson Lecture Series.

Bradford is one of the universities founded as a technology university representing a key component of Harold Wilson’s vision for improving the British economy via ‘the white heat of technology’. The Harold Wilson lecture is delivered annually by a high-profile speaker from the world of politics and technology.
