Powering London: how universities drive growth through people, place and knowledge

This report shows the enormous contribution London’s universities and businesses make to London and the rest of the country. The report looks at the role universities play in four main areas: through teaching a diverse population of students and filling skills gaps; through providing world-class research and innovation, through contributing to their local communities, and through acting as a fundamental component of the city’s global appeal.  

The report has been compiled in discussion with KPMG’s London Leaders’ Circle and hosts case studies from London Metropolitan University, University of East London, The Royal Veterinary College, Brunel University London and Imperial College London.
