Our approach



  • Evidence-based insights

    Our methodology combines robust benchmarking data with deep sector knowledge to help institutions develop partnership approaches and pinpoint areas for improvement.

  • Sharing of good practice

    We will facilitate the exchange of good practice between participants through case studies and workshops.

  • Benchmarking against peer groups

    Participation is open to institutions from the UK, Australia, New Zealand and Singapore, enabling benchmarking against selected peers, national averages and international comparators.

  • A Proven Approach

    Building on the approach used during the 2018 Research Contracts Benchmarking study. This was a year-long project where we worked with 30 UK and Australian universities.
