  • Release date: 2 November 2017
The Academic Expertise for Business (A4B) programme aimed to develop the ability of higher education institutions to work with businesses on: knowledge transfer; commercialisation of research; encouraging development of innovative technologies.

The objective of the final evaluation was to assess the achievements of the programme, its management and delivery, impacts, value for money; and provide recommendations for future delivery.

The methodology employed includes analysis of project monitoring records, interviews with higher education and further education institutions, surveys of staff /academics and businesses. A workshop with the A4B management and delivery team was also undertaken, alongside case studies of nine projects.
