How does it work?
A typical project starts with a chat about you and your business. If there is potential for a productive project a member of the Energy Innovation and Collaboration team will arrange to come and visit you to find out more.
You can tell us what you want to achieve and what your plans are for the future of your business and we will discuss the support you need to do this. There is some form filling to be done, but once that is out of the way we will start to work with you on your project.
We have over 160 academics and researchers at the university working in energy related fields and we will link you up with the right people to make your project a success. A typical project usually lasts around 2 days. This is calculated cumulatively, so in effect we could be working with you for several months.
About 2 months after the project has been completed we will arrange an after-care meeting with a different member of the team to make sure you are happy with everything that has been done for you.
