Ulster University welcomed Sir Richard Needham to its Belfast campus to deliver the 2016 Civic Lecture.

Sir Richard was Britain’s longest serving minister in Northern Ireland. As minister for the economy he was the driving force behind many regeneration schemes including Laganside and Foyleside.

His lecture was entitled “Tale of two cities: Belfast and Bristol. Past, Present and Smart Future", drawing close parallels between the old port city and Belfast.
