SMEs are working more and more with universities to access expert knowledge, specialist skills and new products and service opportunities. Businesses benefit from substantially reduced risk in early-stage R&D, tax benefits and often access to government funding schemes.
A recent report by the CBI showed that two thirds of businesses they surveyed have worked with universities and 50% are looking to grow their links in the future.1 Examples of collaborative links with universities include ‘contract research’, consultancy services, use of facilities and equipment, training and professional development, and longer-term strategic partnerships.
This workshop will help your business build effective R&D collaborations with universities.
