‘Local Links’ is the National Centre for Universities and Business’ (NCUB) latest addition to our showcasing series where we celebrate and share the best of NCUB member collaborations. In this edition, we showcase how collaborations between our universities and businesses are helping local communities and places. By working together, universities and businesses can make a significant contribution to their local areas.

In Local Links, NCUB has collated ten collaboration case studies from across the country that demonstrate the vital role of collaboration in supporting local economies. We celebrate collaborations that are plugging local skills gaps, that are supporting local flagship industries and are delivering goods and services that local communities desperately need.
