NEW REPORT: Rethinking the Role of Further Education Colleges in Innovation Ecosystems

As we focus efforts to increase the UK’s innovation activity, what is the role of further education colleges (FECs) in increasing business innovation? To explore this, Innovate UK commissioned the Innovation Caucus in partnership with:

  • Gatsby Foundation
  • Department for Education
  • BEIS.

The ‘rethinking the role of FECs in innovation’ report  was published this month. It explores the ways in which FECs are developing their offer to support businesses to innovate alongside their established role as education providers.
