Partnership Services

How the University can partner with your organisation, including:

 Coventry University is investing in research excellence. We have invested £100 million in research, with a total spend of £150 million on our estate and facilities. Our team of leading academics has developed a significant portfolio of high-impact research, and we are gaining momentum as a world-class, innovative institution. Use our Research Directory to find out more about specialist expertise, facilities and current work.

Strategic partnerships
: we have a number of strategic alliances across different sectors of industry. These partnerships enable the University to develop opportunities and raise its profile leading to a better quality of services delivered to students. The partnerships take many different forms ranging from long-term strategic alliances with larger companies such as Unipart Manufacturing and Jaguar Land Rover, to smaller project-based collaborations with SMEs. These are not only with commercial organisations but also with public sector bodies and government organisations such as the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills (BIS).

Knowledge Transfer Partnerships (KTP):
 for over 30 years, more than 5,000 organisations have been realising the benefits of Europe's largest knowledge transfer scheme, the Knowledge Transfer Partnerships (KTPs) Programme. The KTP scheme is a UK-wide programme enabling organisations to improve their competitiveness, productivity and performance through a partnership with an academic institution.

We partner with UK businesses to increase their competitiveness, productivity and performance. The programme is led by the business and supported by an expert from the University. It places a recently qualified person into the company, thereby enabling the business to access knowledge, skills or technologies to help it develop, in whatever way it needs to:

  • Placement of one or more recently qualified persons (KTP associate) in the company, overseen by company personnel and a senior academic.
  • Unlimited access to knowledge, technologies and skills within the University 
  • Part funded by a government grant – the business pays only a third of the project costs

Student placements: taking on our students can bring a wave of new ideas into your business. The students bring with them a range of skills and cover a vast array of subjects, such as design, engineering, business, arts, health and languages. There are a number of ways in which to take on student placements: short term over the summer break or throughout the year. We can offer quality students on a subsidised cost basis, giving you a huge saving but still getting the job done. We also have our own in-house recruitment agency which you can access to fill your vacancies.
