Benefit from the latest insights and expertise

We drive change through research and innovation, offering a dynamic consultancy service that is tailored to the needs of your business. In the REF 2021 results, 83% of our research activity was classified either as 'world-leading' or 'internationally excellent', compared with 55% of our research activity in the REF 2014, so you can be sure your business is benefitting from the highest quality insights and knowledge from NTU.

We can work with you on a contract or on a collaborative basis, or we can connect you to our leading experts who can inject the latest knowledge and insights directly into your organisation. This type of support is commonly referred to as a Knowledge Transfer Partnership (KTP).
