Founding Partner Lancaster University

Lancaster is one of the UK’s leading research intensive universities. Performance in successive research assessment exercises has placed Lancaster in the top ten universities in the UK, reflected in our research partnerships that advance core disciplinary knowledge and address key societal issues.

We have rapidly achieved a global reputation for excellence in research and education reflected in high positions in UK and global league tables, consistently high student satisfaction and strong graduate employment. Students from one hundred countries make up a thriving community based around nine colleges. Lancaster’s community extends far beyond the campus with research, teaching and student exchange partnerships with leading universities and institutions in 24 countries around the world from China to Brazil.

Our work with over 5000 SMEs since 1999 has resulted in the creation of 250 new businesses and more than 4000 new jobs and Lancaster, which was named as a top-ten university for SME engagement in the recent Witty Review, is a winner of the Small Business Charter Gold Award in recognition of the role it has played in helping to kick-start British enterprise.
