Would you like to grow your company through funded access to research, development, business or equipment expertise? 

The IMAGE project, supported by the European Regional Development Fund, has been established as a gateway for regional SMEs to link with the capabilities and facilities available within local universities through a number of routes;

  • Research and development
  • Bespoke training
  • Consultancy
  • Specialised events and workshops

As such, Cranfield University in partnership with the University of Bedfordshire, can support you in conducting a range of activities - from prototyping, development and testing of your product through to management coaching, finding business solutions and networking solutions. We have a special interest in aiding women in engineering, the manufacturing sector, and business looking to either grow in the cleantech space or reduce their own business waste, but we are very happy to engage with any SME, whatever their focus and requirement.
