As the UK looks ahead to a transition out of lockdown and the Government considers plans for the UK’s economic recovery ahead of the Autumn Spending Review, universities and business collaborations will play an integral role to creating opportunities for growth.
For this Time to Talk session, we will be joined by Fariba Soetan, who is the Policy Lead for Research and Innovation at The National Centre for Universities and Business (NCUB). Fariba plays a pivotal role shaping, positioning and driving NCUB’s policy and engagement activities across all aspects of its research and innovation portfolio.
NCUB is seeking your views on the fiscal and funding levers that could be deployed to enhance opportunities for universities and businesses in the community. We are particularly interested in your views on some of the obstacles to collaborations that you would like to see addressed in the upcoming Spending Review, including specific examples of any barriers that your institution has experienced.
For those of you who may not have worked with NCUB before, it is a member organisation consisting of UK universities and leading businesses. It develops, supports and promotes world-class collaboration between universities and business across the UK. A link to NCUB's website can be found here.
Further information and a joining link will be sent a little nearer the time. If you have any questions relating to your order, please email Gill Birch
