The UCL Environment Institute interacts with a variety of businesses at different levels; this may be extending or applying existing research techniques to a business environment, researching new ideas to achieve specific results, or mentoring researchers in a joint academic / business partnership.
The Institute has considerable experience in the provision of consultancy services using our unique blend of experts. Each consultancy project is tailored to the client's individual needs and can vary in length from a few days to several months depending on the agreed deliverables and timescales. If you think we may be able to help, please get in touch as we are happy to meet for a preliminary chat to assess your needs and discuss potential options
Funding specific research projects or individual researchers is another way of supporting our research at the Institute, an area in which we have been successful in attracting some major businesses to some high profile projects. Joint initiatives can enable businesses to help shape the research direction of a particular project, benefiting both organisations via the exchange of potential methodologies and the twofold publicity it usually generates.
A range of predefined structures exist for companies jointly sponsor PhD students, helping to cover tuition fees, living expenses and professional development. One such example is ESRC’s Collaborative Awards in Science and Engineering (CASE Awards), whereby a PhD student is given the opportunity of working in collaboration with industrial partner, outside the normal academic environment. Another option might be a Knowledge Transfer Partnership (KTP), designed to help the private and public sector access academic expertise by forming a working partnership.
