As a partner of Innovate UK, the University has the opportunity to apply for significant amounts of funding towards innovation projects through a schedule of sector competitions.
The competitions are strongly linked with our own Research Challenges and offer an opportunity for us to engage with more innovative businesses that require research input to achieve their commercial goals and could provide us with impact case studies.
For us to take part, it is essential we map the academic expertise we can offer to each competition theme, and to help with this, we are running a series of short lunchtime sessions.
