“Under the guidance of an academic mentor, students are working in interdisciplinary teams to understand firstly Nottingham’s development as a SMART and creative city.”

“It's my first visit to Karlsruhe and I'm very impressed with the projects seen. The Alter Schlachtof is a former slaughterhouse converted into a start-up business centre, on which the refurbishment of Sneinton Market was modelled so it's really interesting to see how they have done things here in Germany.”
