If your company has an innovative idea or concept that you wish to deliver but lacks the resource and knowledge in-house to achieve it, commissioning contract research with NTU can help.
Driving innovation through contract research
Contract research puts you in the driving seat. This is paid for directly by your organisation and focuses on finding a solution that will specifically benefit your business and you will own any intellectual property created.
These projects have a pre-determined scope or specification within which our academics will work to in order to deliver the desired solution professionally and confidentially. We can be based on your company site or work within our own state-of-the-art facilities.
To find out more about contract research, get in touch at firstname.lastname@example.org, or call +44 (0)115 848 8899.
