RENU’s mission is to support all aspects of research and enterprise at its 44 member universities. We are not a mission group. We provide support, events and information to our members to help them develop their excellent research and enterprise base.

Our members form part of the UK’s modern university sector. The research performed at modern universities is usually highly applied, is very diverse and often:

·supports local businesses to develop and grow;

·supports social regeneration;

·informs policy at local and national level;

·collaborates to perform research into renewable energy.

·many projects are allied to applied solutions in the healthcare system.
