State of the Relationship

State of the Relationship

State of the Relationship is NCUB's flagship report series which aims to summarise university - business collaboration across the UK and provide an authoritative source on the spread and quality of collaboration activity taking place in the sector.

A State of the Relationship report is published each year featuring a range of expert views and case studies.

The first report, published in April 2014, featured contributions from representatives of Cambridge Judge Business School, Research Councils UK, and the Manchester Institute of Innovation Research as well as nearly 40 case studies from Rolls Royce, Unilever, Astra Zeneca, Northumbria University, King's College London, University of Glasgow, and many others.

The 2014 edition was launched with an event that allowed representatives of the sector to meet and discuss the report's findings. The evening featured speeches from Professor Alan Hughes and David Sweeney and a panel discussion with Dame Julie King, Anne Morrison and Malcolm Skingle.
