Project partners

Academics across the research themes collaborate with non-academic partners to produce world-class innovative solutions. If you are a new researcher interested in developing your network, or an established academic looking to develop a substantial collaborative bid, our business partners can support you.

Whilst our expertise is in relationship management, we do not always have a little black book of contacts that are primed and ready for partnership. Instead, we can help you identify project partners by understanding what you wish to achieve. We can suggest ways to develop your own networks and signpost tools and training opportunities.

Once partners are engaged, we will support the logistics of partnering, getting agreements in place and shaping proposals. Where substantial bids are being developed, we have considerable experience in the coordination of project partners, establishing network events and post-award support.
