‘Knowledge exchange’ is a term used to describe to the transfer of ideas, expertise or skills, often as a result of collaboration between a university and a business, community, third sector organisation or government. This includes the delivery of teaching and learning that engages our local communities and provides opportunities for local people to access our campuses.
Knowledge exchange informs our thinking, enriches our work, and makes a demonstrable difference to people’s lives. Plus, it is a fundamental part of NTU’s strategy, University, reimagined, which was developed in consultation with local stakeholders.
Partnership is key to our mission. As a university, we have strategic partnerships with a broad range of UK organisations, including Santander, Fujitsu and Nottingham Castle Trust. We provide support to over 6,000 organisations, from local SMEs to multinational corporations. Together with the University of Nottingham and other local partners, we are also working to support our local communities through the Universities for Nottingham Civic Agreement.
