The twin challenges of innovation and efficiency are significant for every type of size of higher education institution and the fund set up by the Leadership Foundation and Hefce will help all to see new models, collaborations and ways of delivering better value at a critical time.

AHUA is delighted to support the ITF as a catalyst and assistance to creative and progressive projects that help provide meaningful innovation for higher education, particularly in the areas of efficiency and organisational transformation.
Alison Wild, Chair AHUA
The report of the Efficiency and Modernisation Task Group provides a strategy for the sector to take action on efficiency and effectiveness, and gave renewed impetus to the efforts of institutions. As we move into the implementation phase, the ITF provides an excellent catalyst for capitalising on this momentum.
Professor Ian Diamond, Principal and Vice-Chancellor University of Aberdeen and Chair Efficiency and Modernisation Task Group
An efficient and effective higher education system is in everybody’s interests. HEIs have already done much work to improve their operations and the Innovation and Transformation Fund encourages them to build on that work and to ensure a smooth transition to new funding arrangements. We are looking forward to supporting the Fund and to the benefits that will emerge from it.
Steve Egan, Deputy Chief Executive HEFCE
