“Our universities are recognised around the world as centres of research and knowledge. At the same time, Britain is a country brimming with entrepreneurs and innovators. We want to bring these two assets together, so that businesses and universities can benefit from what each other has to offer.”

Mr Jenrick, Exchequer Secretary to the Treasury

“Our universities are among the best in the world, and when they join forces with our ambitious and innovative small businesses, they have the potential to meet the grand challenges of the future.​ Today’s investment to bring business and academics together will not only lead to the creation of new products and services, it will boost job creation for local areas to feel the benefits of UK innovation which demonstrates our modern Industrial Strategy in action.”

Chris Skidmore, Universities Minister

“We are immensely proud of what has been achieved so far at the University Enterprise Zone, and plan to build on its success by developing both the site and the services it offers in a way that benefits the world around us.”

Professor Shearer West, University of Nottingham Vice-Chancellor
