How we collaborate


We have Business Development Specialists who can help you find industry partners to collaborate on research projects.


We expand our consortium of universities by running open funding calls. This ensures that we engage with research excellence and insights from across the UK.


We provide access to a unique, interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary group of experts which can be convened in response to specific, time-limited issues, or for more strategic advice on longer-term issues.


We also run projects and demonstrators in cities around the UK to develop specialist, localised intelligence and impacts. This benefits businesses and individuals in communities as well as informs our strategic insights on national challenges.


Explore bespoke research options tailored to frame your thinking on key cybersecurity challenges.


We work with corporates, SMEs and microbusinesses to de-risk the early stage development of cutting-edge technologies for commercial application.


We also work with professional bodies and regulators to provide strategic insights to support the adoption of new technologies across industry.


We look to the future by training the new generation of experts that society, government and business will need in order to remain at the cutting edge of research in the future.


You can find the research expertise that you need to give your business a competitive edge.


We have Business Development Managers who can match you with academic partners and research projects, or you can discuss secondment opportunities for our researchers in your company.
