The University of Reading recently took part in a Universities UK (UUK) and ITN Productions film exploring the positive impact that universities have on people’s lives, and on the prosperity of the UK. This short film looks at how we are sharing the benefits of research to address local, national and global challenges.

This film was produced by UUK in collaboration with ITN as part of the ‘Universities: improving futures’ production and was  first screened at the Annual UUK Conference on 4 September. 

Long-term collaborative partnerships are at the heart of the University’s engagement strategy.The mutual exchange of knowledge is embedded into the research process, rooting the research in real-world issues. The value of these partnerships is often overlooked, and this film showcases some examples of the University’s commitment to research that benefits society as a whole.
