The Business Partnerships Team in RKTS work across the University to encourage and support business activity and collaborate closely with external businesses and intermediaries. The team are responsible for encouraging and supporting Knowledge Transfer Partnerships (KTPs), Consultancy, and all privately funded research contracts.
In addition to this central support, there are a few Business Development Officers across the University who work closely with RKTS to maintain and develop external business relationships and generate income.
There are many ways that businesses can contract with the University for a research or other project. The appropriate approach will depend on what they would like to achieve. You can get help from RKTS to work with you and the business to decide the best way forward.
