Research Services

main content

We have an excellent track record of working with a range of clients locally, nationally and globally in the private, public and voluntary sectors. We work in partnership with our clients so that our research and technologies have maximum impact around the world. This ensures that our partners' strategic objectives are achieved and that our knowledge maintains its cutting-edge reputation.

There are several ways in which we can assist you with your research:

Working together on a shared project in an area of mutual interest that can be co-funded between the University, your organisation and/or research agencies.

Contract research
Joint research based on your intellectual property assets, where any rights generated are usually owned by your organisation.

Knowledge Transfer Partnerships (KTPs)
A three-way project between one of our academic staff, your organisation and a recently qualified graduate who works in your organisation. Find out more about KTPs and their funding opportunities.
