Inspiring Research Through Industrial Collaboration

Strategic Aim: Significantly reducing the time from research to large-scale implementation through improved design and management of research collaborations and knowledge transfer, building on the DoEng’s world-leading research.

Engineering Department’s strategic theme on ‘Inspiring Research through Industrial Collaboration‘ has three areas of activity to support the formation and management of collaborations between academics and industrial partners:

  • Investigate:  Developing and sharing a library of good practices in the setup and management of partnerships
  • Inspire and Inform: Providing on-line resources and running events to highlight the opportunities and explain the practicalities of partnerships
  • Implement: Supporting academics and potential partners in the development of collaborative activities

These activities are funded by the Higher Education Innovation Fund. In addition, three RAEng-funded Visiting Professors of Innovation have been appointed to support these activities.
