Who can join NCUB?

Membership is open to universities and businesses in the UK who wish to be part of our unique network.

Each of our member organisations nominates a leader to sit on the Leadership Council, making it a powerful networking body.

By bringing together expertise from every single part of the UK and a range of economic sectors the Leadership Council can identify the challenges at the interface between universities and business and how to work together on them.
