For the second year, the National Centre for Universities and Business is sponsoring the Times Higher Education Award for the “Most Innovative Contribution to Business-University Collaboration”.

This award will go to the business that can demonstrate the most imaginative and effective partnership with an institution or institutions. The collaboration should have been a game-changer, and led to significant long-term benefits to the business, the university and the economy. Companies of any size will be considered, and The Times Higher Education Awards will accept submissions from either universities or the companies themselves, but all entries must be endorsed by the partnering institutions.

The Times Higher Education Awards website has further information and includes entry guildelines. The deadline for submissions is midnight on 2 July.
