The KE campus will provide an environment where knowledge-based businesses can benefit from the University’s research base, knowledge transfer activities, executive training opportunities and graduates as well as international research links through the Worldwide Universities Network.

Vice-Chancellor Professor Alan Wilson said: "This presents a major opportunity for the University to extend its relationship with global corporates and to play a greater pivotal role in the growth of regional tehnology clusters."
