AbstractThis paper discusses the need for, and benefits for both parties from, collaborative research projects between industry and academia developing a case study from the ASTUTE project which develops such projects between universities and manufacturing businesses in Wales. We discuss the history of engagement between academia and industry, and of manufacturing in Wales, then develop the case study of engagement through ASTUTE, with details of ASTUTE’s achievements and findings from academic and business partners in three of ASTUTE’s projects. We conclude that ASTUTE has achieved some success by providing value to both the university and businesses.
