With an excellent track record of collaborating with industry, our flexible and distinctive approach means we're experts at translating research into business benefits.

Widely recognised as one of the best universities for business in the UK, we work with you to understand your needs and challenges. We provide expert innovation advice and support to unlock the potential in your business, co-developing projects to help you stay ahead of the competition.

Our consultancy services give you access to our experts to develop projects, provide proof of concept for new products or services, and evaluate your processes, technologies or projects in development.

We work with businesses of all shapes and sizes in both the private and public sectors, connecting you with our academics who are at the forefront of industry needs and priorities. Each project is different; you could employ us to undertake a short-term piece of research, or it could take the form of a longer-term collaborative project, with your staff working alongside our researchers and field experts/specialists.

Where projects are collaborative we help you identify external funding opportunities. There are many types of funding opportunities available and we can help you identify which is the most suitable for your project. We help you secure funding by getting to know you and your business and writing the funding application on your behalf, articulating what funders are looking for and ensuring your project meets their criteria.

We regularly access the following funds to develop opportunities for businesses to access academic expertise.

  • Innovate UK
  • Research Councils UK
  • European Regional Development Fund
  • Defence and Security Accelerator
  • The Industrial Strategy Challenge Fund (ISCF)
    • AI & and data
    • Ageing society
    • Clean growth
    • Future of mobility

We are experienced in partnership management and continue to work with you and our academics to make sure the project stays on track.
