Development of any kind is vital to all industries and The University of Nottingham is well placed to aid you when it comes to your firm’s growth.
We work with a wide range of businesses, from large international firms to small local companies, on a truly varied array of projects.
The whole interaction we have with the University is extremely friendly. This isn’t contract research, it’s about respect, about working together and about giving the researchers the freedom to work – and through this freedom comes inspiration and innovation.

This is especially true if you take advantage of some of the funding options available to you. There are several different ways in which you can fund this activity:
Finance it entirely yourself, thereby ensuring your needs are the primary focus
Apply to obtain governmental funding for your project
Share the costs of a group research project with companies which would also benefit from the results
