About GW4

Our Vision

We are developing a research and innovation strategy that will position GW4 and its partners at the forefront of addressing key national and global challenges, offering opportunities on a scale that would be unattainable for any single institution. Our collective and distinctive strengths will drive skills development, the creation of future industries, economic growth for societal benefit in the South-West, Wales and the UK.

This is a particularly exciting time for GW4 as we work on a new research strategy setting out our areas of focus to attract large-scale investment to the South-West and Wales. Whilst this will undoubtedly be good for our universities, it will also be of great benefit to the communities that we help to support.
