Many businesses and organisations talk about being centres of excellence, but this is predominantly about one area speciality, such as manufacturing excellence, or a collective term for professional intelligence, such as teaching excellence

The case for establishing The UK Centre of Excellence (UKCOE) is the intent for a premier collaboration based in a leading UK University to provide an exceptional product or service in a clearly defined way to enhance the capacity and capabilities of technology, business, research or government, consistent with the unique requirements and competencies of the Investors in Excellence (IiE) Standard.
