University’s role in regional growth and regeneration recognised in national framework


University of Gloucestershire’s role in supporting regional growth and regeneration has been recognised in the latest release of the Knowledge Exchange Framework (KEF).

The University achieved a rating of high engagement for its support for student and graduate start-ups, its provision of quality training for regional businesses, its success in securing income linked to regional regeneration and its public and community engagement.

The KEF also recognised the University’s continuing strong performance in providing consultancy and facilities for Small and Medium Enterprises through its Growth Hub. The University is at the top of its cluster for this measure.

The Framework, which is published by Research England, reflects how well UK universities build community engagement and promote growth in their local areas. You can read more about this story on the University website.
