Hot ideas, cool solutions
We're in the top 20 for research excellence (REF 2014) and our offer to
business is broad. From award-winning Knowledge
Transfer Partnerships (KTPs) to consultancy,
contract research and executive
education delivered through our MBA, we're sharing our expertise and innovating business.
You don't need a detailed brief when you approach us - simply bring us the
issues you're facing and we'll pinpoint the expertise you need, cost the project,
and help you find the right solution.
Knowledge Transfer Partnerships (KTPs) are part-government-funded
collaborations between universities and businesses.
Come to us with an issue and we'll identify one of our academic teams to work with you,
and put forward a high-calibre graduate who will be based in your company as an associate and
who will manage the project. KTPs can can last up to three years and 67% of project costs
are available for SMEs.
We have more KTPs than
any other university in the East of England, helping more businesses in the UK gain
competitive advantage and ultimately improve their profitability.
We can explain your business innovation funding options. If you're an SME you
can get innovation vouchers worth up to £5,000 to start
working with us. Innovate UK
also offers a range of schemes to support businesses and the UK's Research Councils
support collaborative research projects in the UK.
