Research and Innovation impact at Alliance universities
A new publication highlights the Research and Innovation strengths of Alliance universities.
Globally connected and locally rooted, Alliance universities are central to the hope that this country’s future will be driven by cutting-edge research and innovation. As institutions truly embedded in their regions, Alliance universities transform lives and economies, playing a significant role in producing highly-skilled graduates, undertaking research and galvanising the economy. All members are committed to increase the quality and quantity of their research and will significantly help contribute towards the UK achieving the 2.4% share of GDP on R&D expenditure by 2027.
Central to this mission is a commitment to expand the diversity of R&D talent pipelines and addressing barriers faced by students and staff.
By bringing together case studies from across our 12 member universities, we demonstrate the local and global impact of research and innovation undertaken at Alliance universities; how this impact is driven by their partnerships with industry and business, and the work they have done to contribute to efforts tackling Covid-19.
As institutions with diverse student bodies, we have an important role to play in expanding the diversity of R&D talent pipelines, and addressing barriers faced by students and staff. The report also highlights the work Alliance universities are doing to support a diverse academic pipeline and give Early Career Researchers the best start.
