Bristol Uni to join forces with neighbouring universities to pool research resources
THE Universities of Bristol, Bath, Cardiff and Exeter have announced a formal collaboration, bringing together a high concentration of research expertise and capability in the South West of England and Wales.
The collaboration will enable the group to explore and identify opportunities where their combined research strength can more effectively address global challenges, while also maximising the impact of and return on investment from research funding.
The group of four research intensive universities, each of which has significant research capabilities and which represent a total turnover in excess of £1,300 million, will be known as the GW4.
There are already strong partnerships across the four institutions and the collaboration seeks to build on these.

Professor Eric Thomas, vice-chancellor of the University of Bristol, said: "Regional groupings of research intensive universities are a rapidly emerging and important evolution, enabling the sharing of research infrastructure and the identification of thematic areas of expertise.
"These will be increasingly important in order for universities to address grand intellectual and societal challenges."
