NEON is moving to the University of West London. In March 2021 we held an Extraordinary General Meeting (EGM) for NEON members to outline the background to this move. NEON has been an initiative formally part of London Higher since its formation in 2012. As discussed at the meeting the future development of NEON is now best served by a change in our hosting arrangements. It is the intention now, as agreed at the EGM, to apply for charitable status. It must be stated clearly that this decision is one made with the full support of London Higher and the NEON Executive Committee. London Higher remain, as they have always been, extremely supportive of NEON.
The date of this move to the University of West London is Friday 28th of May 2021.
How will this affect what NEON does?

Finances – updating supplier information to the University of West London
From Friday 28th May all payments for NEON events and activities will be made to the University of West London. Any payments made to London Higher will be transferred back. We will send further information in a few weeks about the University of West London’s financial system so you will be able to update the supplier information at your institution for NEON.
