University-Industry Partnerships for Positive Change

Robust university–industry partnerships are vital to achieve the 17 UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and create a better world for everyone.

Developing the theory and practice of the ‘5th Generation University’, this book shows how cross-sector collaboration and innovation are crucial to maximising the societal benefits of research, education and knowledge exchange, while also driving economic growth and productivity.

The authors bring extensive experience in working at the interface between academia, industry and government to demonstrate how universities can effectively combine transdisciplinary programmatic activities and strategic corporate philanthropy. They explain how long-term alliances can be forged to have a transformational impact on the greatest challenges facing our world such as climate change.

Tim Bodley-Scott is a Strategic Alliance Advisor at University College London (UCL) where he develops transformational strategic alliances with key industry and academic partners.

Ersel Oymak is a former Head of Strategic Alliances Directors and Corporate Relationships for University College London (UCL) and currently an Advisory Board Member at Hounslow Chamber of Commerce. He has significant global technology sector experience with leading corporates including CISCO, working closely with government, industry and start-ups.
