Powering research and innovation

Globally connected and locally rooted, Alliance universities deliver research that is making a difference to people every day and are central to the hope that this country’s recovery will be driven by cutting-edge research and innovation.

In 2018-19, Alliance universities received over £100m worth of research grants and contracts from research funding councils, governments, charities, and commercial businesses.

Already, R&I generated by our members is found in new products, new services, and new discoveries, and has brought improvements to the quality of life of citizens in the UK and around the world.
