As part of our commitment to support communities near and far, we've forged close partnerships with a number of regional institutions and bodies,
Greater Birmingham Chambers of Commerce
We've been a patron of the Greater Birmingham Chamber of Commerce for many years. The direct contract we enjoy with businesses through the branches of the Chamber helps us design service and research activity relevant to the immediate needs of business. Together, Aston, the Chamber and its other patrons work to create a 21st century business eco-system.
Midlands Innovation is a collaboration between eight research-active universities. Our joint strengths in critical areas such as energy, transport, and health are unlocking exciting new avenues of engagement ranging from public partnerships through to deeper collaborations with government and commerce.
Citizens UK provides the University with great links to local community groups, as all its members sign up to support each other. This gives the University access to feedback from a diverse group of people on issues that matter to them, as well as a route to engagement for projects that are supported by the lead organiser of Citizens UK’s Birmingham chapter.
The Aston Villa Foundation
The Aston Villa Foundation is the charitable arm of Aston Villa Football Club, which supports initiatives in the community surrounding Villa Park and across Birmingham. The Foundation delivers schemes across sport, health, education, community safety and community relations agendas – including the Villa Vision project delivered in partnership with Aston University.
