In this booklet, NCUB presents ten collaboration case studies from across the country that demonstrate the vital role of university- small and medium sized business (SME) collaboration.

Engagement between universities and businesses of all sizes is vital for economic growth and tackling many of the challenges facing society. SMEs account for more than 99% of registered firms and 60% of total private sector employment in the country. SMEs can achieve their goals more efficiently when supported by academics who can develop practical solutions to their problems.
