In a complex world, the skills and knowledge of the academic community play a major part helping to unravel and understand key issues and challenges facing different communities.

The economy and society benefit as the insights that arise within our community become policy and practice, products and services improving people’s lives.

Businesses, small, medium and large, are essential links in the chain and, the relationship between industry and academia is increasingly vital, energetic, involving a daily interchange of people, ideas and knowledge.


Prospective partners

We want you to become part of this: Get in touch with our Business Account Manager (Frances Frith), find out about our SETsquared Business incubator or get support for international businesses.
