Mid-term Evaluation and Review of the Academic Expertise for Business (A4B) Programme

CM International was commissioned by the Welsh assembly Government to undertake a Mid Term review of the Academic Expertise for Business (A4B) Programme.

This £60+ ERDF-funded million programme provides research centres across the Welsh HEIs with research project and research capacity funding in line with the government’s strategic and scientific priorities. The review was commissioned to provide the Welsh Assembly Government and its partners with a clear understanding of the outputs and outcomes including funding generated and research and commercialisation outputs achieved. The review also considered the overall delivery model(s) employed and made recommendations regarding the further development of the Programme.
