The role of universities in driving overseas investment into UK Research & Development

Universities play an important role in attracting Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) to the UK, but this report from the Higher Education Policy Institute (HEPI) argues that there is a clear opportunity for this role to be expanded and enhanced through better collaboration between universities, local partners and government.

The report has been written in order to begin a conversation – within universities and across local economic organisations and national government – about what this role looks like, how it can be developed for mutual gain and what benefits this could create for local innovation-led growth and the UK’s global competitiveness.

This report argues that a more intentional and coordinated approach could create many additional benefits for universities, local economies and the country as a whole.
