We pride ourselves on our innovation outcomes. Organisations across all sectors can accelerate the translation of ideas into tangible goods and services when they include leading thinkers and doers in the process. At the University of Birmingham, businesses come to us to access the intellectual property, know-how and expertise embedded in our research community, through consultancy with our academics or collaborative research. These interactions are truly two-way, supported by dedicated account management teams, many drawn from industry ensuring businesses develop cutting-edge products and services and that our academic research continues to be informed by real-world needs.
