Our Knowledge Exchange Framework

The KEF 2023 results place Warwick in the top 20% for business and public and community engagement.. This ranking is especially notable when compared to other leading research-intensive universities, including Oxford, Cambridge, and Imperial College London.

Warwick also performed strongly in IP and commercialisation and research partnerships and was placed in quintile 4 (high engagement) for both these areas.

Speaking about Warwick’s success in the KEF, Professor Stuart Croft, Vice Chancellor and President said:

“Anchored within our local community, we strive to be good neighbours and a positive force both locally and regionally.

"We take great pride in supporting and championing our communities and the wider region. For decades, we’ve collaborated closely with local businesses and industries, generating jobs, opportunities, and investment in the West Midlands, while establishing a world-class reputation for innovation.

"Today’s KEF results reflect the difference and impact we have made to our region – and that’s something I know the whole of the university will be very proud of”.
