The Knowledge Exchange (KE) Hub was established in 2010 through European Regional Development Funding and investment from the University of Strathclyde, to support collaborative links with SMEs in the Health sector by providing Feasibility Study funding and assigning postdoctoral Project Champions to manage each relationship. By the end of 2012, the KE Hub had supported 21 SMEs and helped raise £2.5 million of grant income for SME-academic partnerships.
In 2013, the KE Hub is supporting these partnerships to continue to navigate the SME funding landscape and apply for SME-led programmes such as the Biomedical Catalyst; to prepare for Horizon 2020 and to engage with global industry, ultimately to develop new products and services and to create new jobs.
Below is a list of the current areas in which we are working with SME’s.
• Drug Discovery & Delivery
• Synthetic Biology
• Regenerative Medicine
• Bionanotechnology for Sensors
• Stratified Medicine
• Radiotherapy & radioisotope production
• Diagnostics and Devices
Whether you’re an SME in an emerging relationship with the University, a company wishing to grow an existing relationship or a large, multinational, the KE Hub looks forward to working with you in 2013.
