Universities of Surrey and Strathclyde selected as strategic partners in the future operation of the National Physical Laboratory
Date:7/10/2014

The new alliance will see the two universities and NPL collaborate to bring together their track record of working with business and industry and their complementary academic strengths.

Working with BIS and NPL the successful bid will help to shape the scientific priorities of the UK. The establishment of a Graduate Institute, which will train up to 300 high-calibre PhD students, will provide a pipeline of skilled researchers. Working with the staff at NPL, the potential of the Laboratory will be grown through the creation of a series of regional hubs which will reflect local expertise and business needs.

David Willetts, Minister for Universities and Science, said: "Following a formal competitive process, I have decided that the Universities of Surrey and Strathclyde will become preferred partners and will now work with BIS and NPL to develop a strategic partnership to lead NPL into the next exciting phase in its future.

"The partners' proposal provides the best opportunity to meet the aims set at the beginning of this process. The partnership will help to boost NPL's and the partners' scientific excellence, will strengthen engagement with business, and will make more of the facilities and the site. An important focus will be to develop activity to support postgraduate research and training at Teddington and across the UK."

The partnership will enable all parties to strengthen both the excellence of their science and their engagement with business. The Universities of Strathclyde and Surrey are leading international higher education institutions whose work has an impact on society and the global economy through pioneering research in priority sectors. They share an enterprising spirit and a strong track record of working with business and industry, achieved by removing barriers between scientific discoveries and commercial applications. Both are well-positioned to have a major positive impact on the future success and growth of NPL.
