Knowledge transfer, Research and development... we mean business!

As well as the pure academic research that goes on throughout the university, the University is committed to applied research and knowledge transfer that contributes to the economic vitality and regeneration of the region and is developing a reputation for working collaboratively with business, industry, government and other partners.

With assistance and support from the Research, Innovation and Enterprise Services team, we can identify an academic, researcher or graduate partner who has the right expertise for your business. Together with your partner, you will define and agree a project that will enable you to draw on their expertise and apply it to your business, whilst project outcomes can be used to enhance further research, and teaching.
