"SSE became a business partner of Imperial College London in 2018 and the partnership has enabled us access to expertise which has informed our strategic decision making. The calibre of research and academic insight at Imperial has been consistently excellent and we have really benefited from the access that the partnership has given us to engage with Imperial’s academics."

Learning from each other through this group of diverse businesses, who are all intent on innovating and improving for the future, also makes us to actively work towards being 'first in class' in our own business. Being part of the IBP without doubt has helped us move forwards within our own industry."
