Research project: Industrial Collaboration for Promoting Sustainability

Currently Active: 

Funded by Knowledge Transfer Programme

Project Overview


The concept of the KT activity is based on outreach to industry, including SMEs, with the results of research funded by EPSRC and other bodies. The work involves:

  • Meetings with industry partners who wish to work with the University on sustainability projects and to develop joint activities including KTP initiatives
  • Production of briefing documents aimed at industry and outlining the results of EPSRC and other UK government funded research in relevant industry-specific sectors (e.g. food and drink processing, agricultural production, waste management, renewable energy)
  • Fostering and strengthening links and identifying funding opportunities with local government and regional development agencies in the key areas of the proposal
  • Championing the University's links on high-profile environmental awareness and educational projects
  • Ensuring effective delivery of information on our research results and their industrial applications to government departments and agencies (e.g to Defra, DECC, WRAP, EA)
