International collaboration has allowed for breakthroughs from the UK research base that would otherwise not be possible.

The ability to scrutinise, debate, and share experience is essential for innovation. Such partnerships have contributed endlessly to academic and  scientific progress. Collaboration between global industry and our world class universities has led to greater UK influence on the world stage, and is central to establish and grow the UK’s knowledge-led economy. Simply put, everyone has benefitted from international businesses working with UK universities.

In this booklet, NCUB presents ten collaboration case studies from across the country that demonstrate the vital role of global collaboration and investment in the UK’s research system.
