A NEW partnership between Brunel University and Hillingdon Council aims to combine the talents of staff resources for the benefit of those who live, work and study in the borough. 

They have four key priorities, health and wellbeing, environment, climate and biodiversity, economy and skills plus social impact and culture.  

In addition, both organisations will work together to develop their workforces, including providing professional development and placement opportunities for students.

The partnership will be led by a joint board, bringing together senior leaders to oversee a programme of joint work.  

Leader of Hillingdon Council, Cllr Ian Edwards, said: “[It] will allow both organisations to collaborate more closely on a variety of key local issues and create a multitude of positive opportunities and outcomes for residents, students and businesses.”
