Do you want to create a network for innovative collaboration? Are you looking to co-create some innovative interdisciplinary ideas to respond to a funding call? Do you want to build links with partners in industry, clinicians or other sectors? Are you looking to develop an innovative research strategy? Do you need to agree collaborative ways of working with research parties following a successful funding bid? Are you setting up a Centre for Doctoral Training? Is it important to you to work with others who understand the academic research field?


If you have answered yes to any of these questions, we can help you. Our clients hold a wide variety of roles – including researchers, portfolio managers, interdisciplinary academics, grant-holders, knowledge transfer managers, charity research managers, grant administration managers, CDT training managers, industry liaison managers – but the one thing they have in common is a desire to bring people together to explore innovative ideas in novel ways.

They want to work with facilitators who understand the challenges and pressures of the academic research environment and who will be there to support them in developing ideas throughout their project. That’s why they choose to partner with us.

If this sounds like you and what you are looking for, get in touch for a no obligation chat about how we could support you.


Centres for Doctoral Training (CDTs)

We have considerable experience in working with Centres for Doctoral Training, from initiation meetings with key partners and stakeholders to ongoing project review and idea generation workshops.


We have also provided training specifically for PhD and early career researchers, including workshops that focus on key challenges put forward by industrial partners. These are a great opportunity to work on real challenges and build connections with industry.
