Working with Industry

Undertaking collaborative projects with industrial partners ensures that our research can be applied to solve real-world problems.

 Brassicas in field Warwick and Waitrose tackle food security together
Food security is at the heart of a new doctoral training collaboration between the University of Warwick and Waitrose, thanks to an award from the Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council (BBSRC). Warwick will work with Waitrose and their suppliers, to provide PhD students with a unique combination of academic development and industry training in the field of agriculture and sustainable crop production.
Industry Collaborative Research Projects
Researchers in the School of Life Sciences work closely with companies and government bodies to undertake collaborative projects. This enables us to explore opportunities to translate our fundamental knowledge into solutions for real-world problems in areas such as human health, agriculture, animal welfare and the environment.
CHAP New Centre for Crop Health and Protection (CHAP)
Thursday 24 March 2016 saw the launch of a new Centre for Crop Health and Protection (CHAP) established under the government’s Agri-Tech strategy, which was launched in 2013 to ensure that its investment in agriculture delivers material benefits for society and the economy in the UK and overseas. Researchers in the School will be developing novel control technologies to tackle a range of pests and diseases that are responsible for significant crop losses in fresh produce.
