Industrial Collaboration
We find collaborative research and development initiatives with industrial partners in a wide range of sectors. We assist in identifying and linking industrial research projects with expert teams within academia. We help manage these research projects and work together to secure matching funding from government programs. We encourage industrial partners to contact us and explore the exciting opportunities that we have available. Our current industrial projects have resulted in high impact patent, publication and products for our partners.
