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

At the local and regional level, universities support growth by providing and creating jobs, and leading on local economic and social issues. 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.
