Funders & Partners

Our Funding

NCUB is funded by a combination of membership contributions and support from our public funders across the UK; the Department for the Economy Northern Ireland (DfENI), the Higher Education Funding Council for England, the Higher Education Funding Council for WalesResearch Councils UK, and the Scottish Funding Council.

Some of our projects and research is funded or sponsored separately. Where this is the case, it is clearly indicated.

NCUB is independent and not-for-profit.


NCUB aims to never duplicate or substitute successful work already being carried out by others. In order to support, develop and promote university-business collaboration NCUB works alongside a number of organisations.

All our work is undertaken in partnership with our members and funders. In addition, NCUB works with partners on specfic projects and research, as well as developing strategic partnerships with organisations that share joint aims with NCUB, for example our partnership with the Design Council

If your organisation is interested in working with NCUB, please contact us.
