Collaborative partnerships and contract research
We work closely with partners across a range of collaborative projects and contract research, both nationally and internationally.
Collaborative research projects are an ideal way for your organisation to access expertise at the University of Edinburgh and create meaningful partnerships.
We have a track record of efficiently identifying and harnessing the right expertise at the University of Edinburgh for companies.
The team has managed innovation activities across a multitude of sectors, from energy to advanced manufacturing, from industrial biotechnology to pharmaceuticals, and can share learning and best practice with new partners. We can also scope out and identify funding for joint research projects.
Modern organisations face many challenges, and contract research is one route to creating the new knowledge to address them. Such projects are in our mutual interest: the output not only benefits the company but also contributes to the learning and teaching at the University, with the results usually published.
The University of Edinburgh has 7,000 multi-disciplinary academics engaged in world-leading research which can be harnessed by organisations to address particular challenges. Edinburgh Innovations can work with companies looking to collaborate with the University in order to identify the most relevant team and facilities to address your specific requirements.
