EPS Industrial Collaborators

Business Engagement work with you to introduce you to companies in your area of research and can set up commercial contracts for project collaboration. Since January the Business Engagement Partners for EPS have met with a number of existing and potential industrial collaborators across a variety of sectors, including the Transport sector (Amey and JLR), Defence and Cyber Security (L3-TRL, DSTL, Autonomous Surface Vehicles, Rohde & Schwarz, BAE Systems and Northrop Grumman), FMCG (Huawei, P&G and Mondelez), Advanced Manufacturing (Morgan Advanced Materials and the British Glass Manufacturers Association) and Energy (Air Liquide). If you think your research could or should engage with such companies, Business Engagement would like to hear from you. If you would like to know more or want to contribute, then please get in touch at the address below.

Over the coming months the EPS Business Engagement team will also be talking with PepsiCo on a broad range of topics across the College and wider University, and holding further meetings with Northrop Grumman, Autonomous Surface Vehicles, BAE Systems, Meggitt, Siemens and National Grid. Again, if you would like to get involved, or have any helpful insights or relationships with the companies above then please let the team know.
