The Collaboration Progress Monitor assesses progress across four categories: resources for collaboration, knowledge flows between universities and business, partnerships, and commercialisation activity.

This instalment shows that:

  • English universities are increasing the number of partnerships with small and medium sized businesses
  • Innovate UK grants with academic partners in Northern Ireland are growing in number and declining in size
  • Scottish collaboration is seeing increasing commercialisation activity seen in the higher number of licences granted and spin-offs active after 3 years
  • Welsh universities are reducing the count but increasing the size of partnerships with small and medium sized businesses
