The Office for Students and Research England have launched a £10 million competition to try to improve the benefits of knowledge exchange for students.

The £10 million funding will be awarded to projects that explore how students benefit from knowledge exchange in universities, which covers how those institutions share their work with industry and wider society.

According to the OfS, in 2017-18 universities in England generated £3.7 billion and received more than £146 million of investment. The regulator said that while students already benefit from knowledge exchange, for example by setting up start-up companies, it was difficult to assess the scale of their contribution and the benefits for them.
