We have ties with 120+ industrial partners in the automotive, aerospace, battery, and materials sectors, working in collaborative relationships that help to identify application needs as we continue to reshape our research programmes. Collaborative opportunities, such as Industry Sprints and Fellowships, are increasing in number and delivering value. In collaboration with our university and training partners we seek to identify internship placement opportunities as a pathway to place individuals from our growing talent pool into industry roles. Contact us if you are an industry organisation looking to collaborate.
