Parliamentary briefing: The role of universities in sustaining an industrial strategy for the UK

Universities have a crucial role to play in driving an industrial strat​egy and future economic growth for the UK.

Our submission to the Business, Innovation and Skills Committee inquiry into the government's industrial strategy highlights that there is an important window of opportunity for government to enhance the role of universities in developing and implementing an industrial strategy, through the use of targeted government funding. This will ultimately achieve a stronger and more fair UK economy, and maximise the opportunities for the UK to compete successfully on the global stage.
