4 44 There are many reasons why academic relationships are important to us Add Capability Enable Collaboration Enhance Credibility Access to expertise we couldn’t hope to replicate in- house In support of our own research efforts “Because they will use it for something we haven’t thought of, and it will break.” Influencing what’s taught and how To provide peer groups for our own researchers and subject matter experts To allow us to work as part of the wider research community Through our own Innovation Research Programme Through academic independence Facilitating contact with individuals and organisations who might otherwise prove hard to reach Underlining our status as an innovative company and a good corporate citizen

5 55 Some examples of our current and recent academic partnerships Five-year research-based partnership from 2005 to 2010 Centred on 5 themes, including public policy & productivity Seminar programme to disseminate & discuss findings HP-funded, full-time research centre in the School of Management Aimed at developing expertise in Programme and Project Management Long-standing relationship, exact nature has varied over the years Current focus is a teaching partnership - HP-branded degree in Enterprise Computing combining internships, professional qualifications Unique (?) example of a technology company sponsoring contemporary history department Rolling sponsorship programme combining MA bursaries, academic funding and a high-profile seminar programme

6 66 What makes a successful partnership from our perspective? –“Bottom-up” rather than “Top-down” –Good quality, relevant and practical research and teaching –Mutually beneficial (not necessarily symmetrical) –Focussed on competitive differentiation and adding value –Trusting, strong personal relationships –Academic Independence is not the elephant in the room (but we’re all grown-ups, aren’t we?)
