University link can set firms thinking of a better future

Louise Arnold, a business engagement executive at free business-to-academic matching service Interface, says companies established for a year or longer could benefit from the University of Edinburgh's Enterprise Consultancy Project. Santander has also recognised that small businesses are key to economic recovery, as reflected in its decision to launch its Universities SME Internships programme, linking 4,000 final-year undergraduates and recent graduates to businesses for fixed-term projects lasting three to six months. Edinburgh University has placed over 100 students in the past two years with SMEs through the Santander scheme.
