Alan Hughes is Margaret Thatcher Professor of Enterprise Studies at Judge Business School, Director of the Centre for Business Research at the University of Cambridge and Director of the UK Innovation Research Centre, a joint venture between Cambridge and Imperial College London. He is also a member of the Council for Science and Technology which is the UK’s senior policy advisory body in this area.

Professor Hughes has looked at the role of universities in innovation and how knowledge exchange patterns between universities and science work in practice.  The relationships, he says, work on both a formal and an informal basis and there is no one size solution to all collaborative partnerships.
