Working with your business

As a team, our aim is to provide an easy route into the University for anyone interested in working with us and accessing our research. We provide high-levels of service and support to enable partners to develop collaborations via a range of mechanisms and funding opportunities, and focus on helping companies grow and increase their competitiveness.

By providing tailored support throughout the entire process, we enable project teams to successfully secure funding and focus time and energy on the project in hand.

We support a variety of mechanisms, and our approach is to work with our partners to understand the challenges being addressed, in order to identify the most appropriate approach and finding. A key focus for the team is the government scheme, Knowledge Transfer Partnerships (KTP), and you can find more here.
