University Enterprise Zones (UEZs) are specific geographical areas where universities and business work together to increase local growth and innovation. Each UEZ will be supported by a partnership between a university, Local Enterprise Partnerships (LEPs) and others. The government are providing £15 million in capital funding between 2014 to 2017 to fund 4 pilot UEZs. For every £1 of government funding, the universities will raise £2 of match funding.

This report includes recommendations on how to evaluate progress throughout the life of the funding programme. It also looks at 4 universities and suggests how they should be assessed once the project is running. The universities are: Bristol, Bradford, Liverpool, and Nottingham.
