About us

The UK must work together to solve our biggest challenges. Collaboration creates solutions that are more sustainable and better implemented.

The National Centre for Universities and Business is the collective voice of our members, the UK’s universities and leading businesses. By promoting and shaping their collaboration, we champion its value in securing the UK’s future.

We’re committed to bringing organisations together to leverage the skills and talent fostered by our universities and to strengthen further the UK’s world-class research and development. Our strategic, cross-sector network linking universities, business and government provides the platform for our members to engage on areas of opportunity. We’re their trusted expert, driven by data. We’re innovators, developing our digital portfolio and analytics expertise so partnerships we initiate are more meaningful and insightful.

Our relationships with UKRI and government mean we’re a voice of influence and our members’ views are heard. Now, more than ever, we need the learning and shared skills that can only come from collaboration. This will build a stronger UK with a flourishing economy, a united society and positive impact. We’re at the centre. Helping the UK prosper, by working for the UK together.
