Midlands Innovation has a number of research and innovation programmes.

More than just a project, these are long-term, structured collaborations that build on our collective and complementary capabilities in areas of strategic regional and national importance.

Working in partnership, these programmes run for a number of years and exploit what is best within our institutions enabling us to deliver at a scale that we couldn’t reach as individual universities.  They help our institutions to learn from each other through the sharing of best-practice and create new growth opportunities within and between our institutions, with regional and national government, and in close partnership with business, industry and communities across the region and around the world.

Our research and innovation programmes are under the supervision of our Executive Management Group (EMG). Each programme is led by a senior figure from our institutions and its progress is regularly monitored by our EMG.
