Strength in the region

Universities and HE colleges in Yorkshire are working more closely with business and the community, according to a new report published by UniversitiesUK. The Regional Mission: Yorkshire and the Humber summarises their contribution to the region's economic, social and cultural development. Collectively, Yorkshire HE institutions have an annual turnover of 1 billion, nearly 2% of regional GDP, and bring in a total of 240m in research income. They employ over 33,000 people, and 39% of their graduates find jobs in the region.
