Consultations and responses

The UK’s universities are essential to the UK’s productivity performance and long-term economic growth.

Their engagement reaches across the globe and into local communities, spanning multinational companies, the world’s best researchers, local businesses of all sizes, and employers.

The UK’s universities have a central role to play in the development of the government’s modern industrial strategy, and across all the proposed pillars: their health, and strength, is essential to the success of the industrial strategy.
