Standing Together: Universities Helping Business through the Downturn
Universities UK
Higher education can play a major role in helping British business to survive the economic downturn and to build for the future. Your universities and higher education colleges have a strong record in fostering innovation, enterprise and skills, and in helping to create wealth and job-generating opportunities. And they want to work with you to improve the support they give to business. Higher education has never been more business-friendly. This pamphlet describes: (1) the kinds of support universities and colleges can offer to employers in the present economic climate and how this support may make a difference (and how universities can improve this offer by talking to and understanding businesses, to make their support quick, flexible and responsive to your needs); and (2) how higher education will continue to support knowledge, business, its workforce and the economy in the long term. For businesses, there are also contact details for people local to you who can help you find the right university partner--and people who may be able to help you find funding to support the partnership. (Contains 15 footnotes.)
