We welcome any opportunity to work with external organisations upon collaborative projects, and the University has a variety of models for collaboration, such as consultancy contracts, knowledge transfer partnerships (KTPs) or sponsored research.
Our consultancy work is arranged through the University's commercialisation organisation, Edinburgh Innovations.
