3 October 2008
Professor Malcolm Grant, UCL President and Provost, has been named by the Prime Minister as one of the government's new Business Ambassadors. The Business Ambassadors network brings together business and university leaders who will work with the government to promote the UK's excellence internationally and highlight trade and investment opportunities.
Professor Grant said: "This is a welcome recognition by the Prime Minister of the enormous contribution of UK universities to international trade, in terms both of world-leading research and rigorous education. The role gives rise to a significant responsibility but also creates a great opportunity to promote the qualities of UK higher education in a global market."
