Our strengths have been built on the forming of successful partnerships with regional, national and global businesses, institutions, trade organisations and other stakeholders such as primary and secondary schools and public service organisations.
We believe in long-term partnerships to enhance and deepen knowledge and expertise on a continued basis. The longevity of collaborative activities provides greater value add to local and global businesses, who are constantly striving for a competitive advantage.
We have a proven, globally recognised track record of working successfully with the industrial sector on research programmes, these range from small scale projects to large scale multi-partner projects covering activities such as research, training and innovation management.
Our Doctorate studentships and Knowledge Transfer Partnerships provide an effective way of combining research needs and investment in skills deployment.
We keep in close contact with institutional bodies in the fields of engineering, manufacturing, science and technology to ensure we keep up to date with the professional communities, latest opportunities and compliance in best practice.
