UNIVERSITY NEWS LAST UPDATED : 10 JUNE
Three West Midlands Universities have joined forces to support the region during the COVID-19 pandemic.
West Midlands Combined Universities, made up of Birmingham City University, Coventry University and the University of Wolverhampton, has transformed some of its services and resources to support efforts to tackle the virus and underpin economic growth.
Whilst the consortium was formed to help drive forward innovation, investment, job creation and boost skills in the West Midlands, the three universities have also responded quickly to the COVID-19 pandemic. This has been achieved by bolstering numbers of staff on the NHS frontline, delivering community initiatives for those most in need and repurposed research facilities to produce and deliver vital equipment.
