Innovation and Business Partnerships Team
Welcome to the Innovation and Business Partnerships Team. We establish, build and support strong research collaborations between industry partners and academia. Our team focuses on facilitating enduring strategic partnerships with companies and funding for collaborative research.
Through our team's large network of contacts, we can work with you to identify the ideal industrial partner for your research.
We can offer support for your collaborative research, whether that is simply facilitating the right introductions, through to on-going post-agreement support to ensure longevity in your partnerships.
We can work with you to fully understand and assess your exact research focus and needs. We can then liaise with any relevant departments and contacts to assemble bespoke, multi-disciplinary research propositions that match the University's strengths to company needs.
