Universities and growth: the Witty review

Final report of Sir Andrew Witty’s review of universities and growth.


This independent review by Sir Andrew Witty investigates how universities can drive growth in their areas and for the benefit of the wider UK. It makes recommendations on simplifying complex funding streams, securing the potential of the technologies of the future, and giving universities a greater role in delivering economic growth.

The review builds on the Wilson review of business-university collaboration, taking into account developments since the Wilson review was published.
