Consultancy and research for business

Through academic consultancy, student consultancy and research, our subject experts provide bespoke research and development services to businesses that have real impact.

Academic consultancy

Our academics can act as consultants for your business. Access to specialist knowledge and expertise can help you solve a business challenge and provide deeper insight and knowledge into a specific subject area. Our academics can be engaged in consultancy projects from as little as a day or two to longer term periods, depending on your needs.

If your business needs a greater understanding of a particular issue, or requires technical analysis or testing services, please contact our business and enterprise centre.
