Welcome to the web pages for the Aberystwyth Bangor Strategic Alliance

Aberystwyth and Bangor Universities announced a new Strategic Alliance on Wednesday 7th December 2011 that signalled a new phase in the partnership between the two institutions.

Professor April McMahon and Professor John Hughes signing the Strategic Alliance agreementThe Strategic Alliance builds on a history of collaborative activities between the two Universities and most recently on the successful HEFCW funded £10.9m Research and Enterprise Partnership which was established by the two universities in 2006.


The Universities are collaborating across a broad range of their activities and have established a governance structure to oversee the development, delivery and growth in the Alliance.  These pages capture some of the activities we are pursuing but not all.  Collaborations are being developed , from multi-million pound collaborations through to individuals exploring the potential to share a policy, a task or the development of a research question and all are seen as important manifestations of the joint working between the two Universities. 

The new Strategic Alliance is already beginning to broaden and deepen the partnership between the two universities through the joint strategies in Teaching and Learning, Innovation and Engagement, Widening access and various regional planning process.

These pages are being revised and redeveloped to show the full range of activities being supported and I would encourage you to visit them from time to time to see how they are developing.

Chris Drew, Deputy Head of the Strategic Alliance
