Knowledge exchange is a collaborative and creative effort that helps knowledge and research to make a positive impact in society and the economy. This review of the Knowledge Exchange Concordat – an initiative to support universities in their knowledge exchange activities – looks at the results and gives recommendations for next steps.
Our universities generate growth and opportunity across the UK. They bring jobs, investment and facilities to our local communities, and will be at the heart of addressing economic and social disparities. But to do more, we need the government to work with universities.
Open access publishing means making research available as widely as possible, so that knowledge is easily accessible to everyone. These are our publications from 2015 to 2019 about open access in the UK.
Commissioned by Universities UK, UK Research and Innovation and the Wellcome Trust, the second phase of the Concordats and Agreements Review (CAR), brought together the initiative owners and the research and innovation (R&I) community to look for potential future alignments to increase influence, capacity, and efficiency across the landscape.
Our universities are a national asset. They give opportunities, grow the economy, solve global challenges, and equip graduates with skills for the future. We’ve set out the most compelling evidence behind the impact of universities.
