Research for business
We offer expert research and development (R&D) to businesses who want to solve current and potential challenges. Applied research is an integral part of our portfolio and includes consulting, business development and market research.
We have a strong track record of carrying out cutting-edge applied research and successful business consulting. Businesses can access our qualitative and quantitative research through a variety of funding options.
We offer businesses a number of avenues for accessing our research expertise. These include match funded research scholarships and Knowledge Transfer Partnerships (KTP). Another route is part or fully-funded research projects and two good illustrations of recent work are:
- Our Centre of Expertise in Flammable Gases, part sponsored by Sellafield Ltd. This maintains a core of expertise in a scientific area of significant importance to the Company which they access as and when needed.
- The Ehrenberg Centre in Marketing which offers businesses a "club" approach to research. The research undertaken is pre-competitive and each club member has access to 'common' research themes carried out.
We also undertake research projects for small and big businesses alike at competitive rates and where speed and confidentially are key requirements.
