OPINION: A new way of working

Have your say

We’re celebrating a first today.

We’re proud to have entered into a unique partnership with the University of Sheffield.

Each month the university will get two pages to shout about their news.

If you think that’s just of interest to students, then you couldn’t be more wrong.

Groundbreaking research by university staff and students in science, engineering and medicine impacts on all our lives and the work of academics in Sheffield influences national and international political leaders.

The institution is also a powerhouse of the local economy, employing thousands and playing a major part in the region’s regeneration through projects like the Diamond building and Factory 2050.

And let’s not forget the vibrancy that 25,000 bright students and staff from 120 countries bring to the city.

There’s another reason why this link up is a first too.

Students are able to upload their work direct into the newspaper’s pages using a system called One View designed to make us more accessible, allowing our readers to feel part of our news gathering and so bringing us closer to the people we serve.
