Knowledge exchange involves transferring good ideas, research results and skills from the university to business and the wider community to enable the development of innovative new products, services and processes.
The Knowledge Exchange team at Coventry University can work with businesses in a variety of ways, from Knowledge Transfer Partnerships (KTPs) to industry-funded studentships.
Coventry University’s Knowledge Exchange team are keen to work in partnership with institutions and businesses across Europe to find solutions to the problems faced by industry, drive business growth and produce real socio-economic value. We are able to bring to the table all the research and expertise possessed by one of the UK’s leading universities and use this to address industry problems by creating innovative and practical business solutions.
There are a number of practical models of cooperation available, from short-term industry-academic partnerships to solve specific problems and build relationships, through to industry doctorates that tackle key technical problems and generate new intellectual property, enabling a step-change in future performance.
Our partnerships can enable your employees – from newly qualified graduates to experienced managers – to translate their problem-solving abilities into real, competitive advantage. Collaboration is essential for working in integrated, multi-disciplinary ways that provide a clearer, faster route from concept and testing to full-scale manufacture and supply.
Working with Coventry University can add value to your innovation approach and help you go beyond short-term transactional projects to attain benefits that can only be achieved through a trusted relationship built up over time.
