Invest in UK R&D

Invest in a partnership with universities in the Midlands

Through pioneering co-location, joint research and technology demonstrators, universities in the Midlands are redefining how academia works in partnership with industry.

From Warwick to Nottingham, Birmingham to Lincoln, universities in the Midlands are world-renowned for their strengths in science, research and innovation across four key sectors: Agritech, Health & Life Sciences, Transport Technology, and Zero Carbon Energy.

Produced in partnership with the UK Government and GREAT Campaign, these four sector prospectuses build upon the region’s Science and Innovation Audit to introduce the breadth and depth of innovation opportunity for businesses and funds seeking to invest in a partnership with a university in the Midlands.

They highlight the enormous complimentary strengths that come from working with our region’s institutions, who have forged a genuine innovation super cluster in these four sectors across innovation, talent and R&D facilities. Our collaboration and connections can become your competitive advantage.

The prospectuses articulate these sectoral strengths, showcase the internationally distinctive R&D equipment and facilities that universities in the Midlands host, map out key capabilities and facilities and identifying key stakeholders.

Together this provides a distinctive offer to investors across the world looking to forge the future through an R&D partnership in the Midlands.
