For our partners, we deliver world-class science and education with a practical, business-focused edge. We can assemble teams of experts from across our skill sets, often in collaboration with other Universities, and consultants, to meet challenges of your business. Many of our academic staff have also spent considerable portions of their careers in industry or government.

Access to our expertise can be through direct or competitive research commissions that we can help you cost, through small pilot projects, through direct consultancy or long-term strategic partnerships that span the University’s expertise.
