By developing long-term integrated relationships with industry and government, we are able to extend the reach and impact of our work and identify emerging global challenges and solutions.

Working with corporate partnerships

The corporate partnerships team in the Faculty utilises its expertise to formulate research collaborations between academics and industry that add value to partners and drive forward the success of the Faculty's multidisciplinary research activities.

The corporate partnerships team can help companies to:

  • set up new research collaborations
  • explore research themes and identify the right people to work on problems
  • develop relationships with academics
  • optimise the terms and shape of a particular collaboration
  • deliver an output from a collaboration through effective account management and ongoing support

The team wants to work with the academics in the Faculty who have particular research challenges, and wants join up with companies to solve these worldwide problems.
