University research and collaboration with companies

This article is a bit confused it uses example of steel developed at Cambridge as the example of a component where University research has contributed to the airplane engine (correct) and then talks about how Rolls-Royce benefits from its network of University Technical Centres (UTCs) (also correct). However I don’t believe that any of the UTCs have competence in steel design, that work was done in  Harry Bhadeshia’s phase transformation and complex properties research group in Cambridge. This shows how Universities and Companies benefit from being flexible in their approach to collaboration.

  1. This leads to the question as to whether the paying of bribes was/is more important to the RR business model as opposed to R&D. That would be interesting to know, is research causing the hemorrhage of vital bribery funds from large defense companies in the UK?
