For business

We provide an extensive range of services for business, including opportunities to use our research expertise through consultancy, collaboration, Knowledge Transfer Partnerships, and support for start-up businesses.

We provide advice and support to our University's academic community. We'll help you find, secure and manage research funding, and commercialise your work. We also co-ordinate research planning and manage the REF submission.

We support you through the entire research lifecycle. We can help you find funding and turn a good idea into a research grant application. We also offer guidance on research ethics and intellectual property issues, and provide the legal expertise required to negotiate any contract relating to collaborative research. Once a grant application has been successful, we will administer your grant on your behalf and provide knowledge exchange support to ensure your research output is disseminated as widely as possible.
