Today the National Centre for Universities and Business (NCUB) released its flagship State of the Relationship Report 2015.

Highlighting the successful outcomes of inspiring University and business collaborations, the report includes a case study of Hireserve and the University of Reading’s relationship.

From manufacturing to food and drink industries, the report showcases the benefits of the UK’s business-university partnerships, which David Docherty, Chief Executive of the NCUB, describes as ‘robust, healthy and growing’ in his introduction.

Well worth a read and we’re delighted to be included for our work with the University of Reading and the Knowledge Transfer Partnership (KTP) scheme.

“Following the KTP, Hireserve and the University are proactively driving a mutually beneficial relationship.”
