Yorkshire Universities is a membership association representing all 11 higher education institutions in Yorkshire and the Humber.
Its aim is to foster collaboration and partnership working to maximise the value and impact of higher education in Yorkshire and the Humber.
The region’s higher education sector represents a major source of innovation and a knowledge base for business and other partners to draw on.
Yorkshire’s universities and higher education institutions have a strong track record in collaborating, not only with one another but also with other public and private partners.
This has led to many benefits including inward investment, the attraction and retention of graduates, support for local communities, cultural facilities and the development of key industrial sectors.
To maximise the impact of Yorkshire’s universities, it is vital that key partners – universities, businesses, local authorities and development partnerships – invest and work together across the whole of Yorkshire and Humber to drive growth and generate wealth through a knowledge-based, innovative and sustainable economy.
