Collaborative Research and Development

Collaborative Research and Development in the Faculty of Engineering

We have 13 research institutes, academic staff working within these institutes are always interested in discussing new collaborations to apply and develop our research skills, technologies or methodologies.

There are a number of ways we can work with you. We often work with external partners to seek grant funding for applied research or development, on a collaborative basis. Examples of funding programmes we have used for collaborative research and development are Engineering & Physical Sciences Research Council Industrial Case Awards, Technology Strategy Board Funding Competitions, the European Union Framework 7 programme. We have good track records of achieving success in each of these.

Alternatively, if you prefer to work on a direct fee basis, in which you retain full intellectual property, we would arrange a contract research or consultancy contract. For more information go to our 'expert advice and guidance' page.

If you would like to discuss a particular project, please contact business@engineering.leeds.ac.uk or the relevant research institute.
