This study examines the impact of a series of development projects funded by the ESF-sponsored ADAPT Initiative on the development of the University for Industry concept in the UK. While the Ufi policy was being developed, organisations were encouraged to submit proposals for the final round of ADAPT funding for projects which both met the aims of the ADAPT Initiative and would contribute to developing Ufi-related policy. This study tracks the development of ten of the successful projects and examines their policy contribution in terms of the outcomes of the projects themselves and the factors affecting their achievement and the implications for Ufi/learndirect and the processes in place for these lessons to be communicated. This is the main report on the findings; the case studies are published in a separate report (ref RR305).
