Every year, the National Centre for Universities and Business (‘NCUB’) publishes the State of the Relationship report, recognised by policymakers, businesses and universities alike for the insight it provides into university-business collaborations in the UK.

This year, NCUB ran three online roundtables in October to explore the findings from this year’s Collaboration Progress Monitor, an in-depth quantitative analysis featured in the State of the Relationship report that looks at different metrics across research, innovation, skills, and talent.

NCUB hopes to use feedback and insights gathered from this series of roundtables to help policymakers shape and define new initiatives improved programmes that can enhance the ways in which universities and businesses work together to contribute to the UK’s economic and social growth.
