Knowledge Exchange (KE) schemes create a mutually beneficial business/University strategic programme led by a suitably qualified graduate. These partnerships aim to embed new expertise, stimulate business growth and power innovation. Supported with grant funding up to 75% of the project costs, a KE project provides businesses with cost-effective access to the unique resources within the University’s knowledge base: it’s research expertise, cutting-edge technology, and equipment. Knowledge exchange programmes can run from 6 to 36 months.

The core knowledge exchange programmes are Knowledge Transfer Partnership (UK) and SMART Partnership (Wales).

An internship is a method of on-the-job training for professional careers. An internship can vary in length from a few weeks to several months and can be paid or unpaid, depending on the employer. Internships consist of an exchange of services or experience between the individual and an organisation. These are a great way for organisations to engage with talented students and scope out potential future employees.

Industrially sponsored PhDs or MPhils are a fantastic way to build a sustained, ongoing and long-term relationship with an academic department. A 1-2 year MPhil or 3-4-year PhD project provide a mechanism to develop a detailed understanding of a research area and embed that knowledge within a company. An industrially sponsored MPhil or PhD creates research and development outcomes that will enhance the company’s core activities, products, processes and/or services.
