In this report, the Centre for Cities, supported by Santander, highlights the role of UK cities in addressing and overcoming the barriers to collaboration between universities and businesses.

This ‘delivering change’ paper offers a series of case studies in the UK and abroad showing different ways universities, high-growth firms and cities collaborate. Some take advantage of history and brand such as Cambridge, while others build cross-border networks in order to build scale and make greater investments than they could on their own.
