Innovation & Enterprise


Develop a research partnership with UCL

Open up a world of possibilities for your organisation through a strategically managed, long-term research partnership.

UCL is a research powerhouse. At Innovation & Enterprise, we make this knowledge available to leading businesses, in collaborations that have the power to transform the organisation and the wider world.

Find the expertise you need

Whether you’re exploring or developing products, processes or services, we’ll work out what input your business needs. Then we’ll match it to the breadth and depth of expertise available across UCL.

The sectors we support include:

  • energy, resources and the built environment
  • pharmaceuticals and healthcare 
  • new technologies
  • engineering and high-value manufacturing
  • transport and urban services
  • creative industries
  • public sector and third sector

We combine this knowledge with an overview of UCL’s many areas of expertise, bringing different disciplines together to address larger business problems.

Build a strategic collaboration

Forming a partnership is inherently complex. We use recognised industry techniques to make sure each one is built on shared objectives and follows an agreed action plan.

You’ll then have a single point of contact who’ll keep it on track and look out for opportunities to extend the relationship further.

Start the conversation

Partnerships can come in all shapes and sizes, and support many different outcomes.
