Funding boost for students to work with business and communities

Funding boost for students to work with business and communities

Twenty universities and colleges have been awarded funding for projects to boost students’ involvement in activities to share knowledge and skills beyond the academic community.

A total of £10 million has been awarded by the Office for Students (OfS) and Research England to projects which will seek to understand the benefits to students of getting involved in partnerships with businesses, engagement with communities and third sector organisations, and professional training – collectively known as ‘knowledge exchange’ activities.

Please see the full announcement on the Office for Students website, and the full list of projects on the Research England website.
