TenU handed £4m boost to develop business-academia ecosystem
TenU, the association of ten world-leading US, UK and EU university technology transfer offices, – including UCLB – has received a £4 million boost for its programmes over the next five years.
The funding includes a £2.5 million grant from Research England, endorsed by the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy.
The Research England grant will help fund the collection of international evidence on best practice in ecosystem building, such as how to create resilient networks and partner with investors, developers and local communities to support economic growth through university innovation.
