Abstract:

This paper brings together a number of case studies on how cities from the UK and beyond have supported university-business collaborations.

Knowledge intensive businesses and services are significant drivers of growth, and are increasingly urban. For many UK cities, their greatest concentration of knowledge and innovation is their universities, so national and local decision makers are increasingly looking to support collaborations between universities and high-growth firms.

Cities can promote collaborations with universities and businesses by taking advantage of their history and brandbuilding cross-border networksinvesting in local strengths and anchoring relationships through large firms.
