The University’s Knowledge Transfer Partnerships programme, part-funded by Innovate UK, has been established for over 25 years and has delivered over 80 projects. The programme employs a graduate to work in your company for between 6 months and 3 years to deliver a strategic project with support from an academic expert.
You can also pay outright for an academic to carry out a research project on your behalf. University academics regularly apply for government funding and other types of funding to support the continuation of their research and are often looking for commercial partners. We can explore whether research grants or other research funding are available to support your work with us.
