Universities and colleges are all around us, and have a far greater influence on our day-to-day lives than we are aware of.
Through their wide-ranging R&D and training activities, universities are already demonstrating how they can bring real benefit to the Wales of the future.
Universities and colleges also play an important role in their communities, and in connecting people and places.
These case studies provide an insight into how our universities are working closely with their partners in the private, public and third sector to make a difference to all our lives.
They also emphasise the strong partnerships between higher education providers and their communities.
