UK universities are huge assets to their cities and regions, and to the UK’s economy and society more widely. The expectation is that the Knowledge Exchange Framework (KEF) will highlight the contribution they make, prompt universities to give even more support to knowledge exchange activities, and highlight to organisations that don’t currently interact with universities the potential benefits such partnerships can bring.
Collaboration between institutions, as well as partnerships across higher education, government and industry, increases researcher and institutional visibility. Research has shown that institutions with a diverse array of partnerships and collaborations have higher citation rates. Having the ability to discern which collaborators and partners have the potential to propel your strategic objectives forward gives your institution a distinct competitive advantage. This is true whether your objective is to secure funding or encourage innovation, commercialization of research or economic development.
The introduction of the Knowledge Exchange Framework reflects an urgent need to accelerate the exchange of knowledge among governments, universities and industries to stimulate economies and solve society’s most pressing challenges.
The AESIS Network and Elsevier are excited to welcome you at the workshop on ‘Knowledge Exchange Structures for Societal Impact’ in Oxford.
