Apprenticeships: uncovering technical talent

To celebrate National Apprenticeship Week, we look at some of the technical talent recruited to our universities through apprenticeships.

Bringing academia and industry together

Each year, NCUB celebrates collaborations between universities and industry in a report highlighting trends in innovation. This year, activities at two SES members are featured.

A fibre laser cutting metal at the Zepler Institute. Fibre lasers use considerably less energy than traditional methods and are a key means of decarbonising manufacturing.

How QR funding supports innovation and jobs in our universities

Quality-related research funding has been described by the Russell Group of universities as “the invisible force holding up the UK’s research ecosystem”.

Accelerating pathways to climate neutral aviation
