We have submitted our response to the Commons Review on Business-University collaboration and are delighted to represent the innovative and market-leading work of Alliance universities.

In the UK’s global, knowledge-based economy, where 80% of new jobs are in high-skill areas and new and growth industries take a high-tech, high-skill and innovative approach, Alliance universities are the critical force in the sector driving the UK’s economic future alongside and in partnership with businesses.

University Alliance’s response highlighted the range of mechanisms that are supporting effective business-university collaboration. It also emphasised that the ability of the UK to respond to future global challenges and industrial opportunities relies on maintaining the strength and depth of the research base in both subject areas and research activities.
