Our commitment

    We are committed to making a difference to people's lives in Liverpool City Region, the North West and beyond.

    We host some of the University’s key innovation assets including the Materials Innovation Factory, Digital Innovation Facility, Virtual Engineering Centre and the Stephenson Institute for Renewable Energy. We interact with companies of all sizes from multinationals to SMEs.

    We work with local civic and government organisations to inform public policy in areas such as planning and climate change. We team with local cultural organisations in developing public awareness of major societal challenges and how science and engineering can provide solutions. We develop our students’ employability skills so that they can make an immediate impact upon graduation.

    The six sections of our report develop these themes and host illustrative case studies:
