Business Boost and Accelerator Projects

Find out how our Business Boost and Accelerator Projects could help your organisation.

Business Boost Programme

We fund our PhD students to apply their research to real life challenges. If you have a business problem to solve, we have people ready to help.

Funding is available for new and established links with the broad business community.

The benefits are twofold: your business receives help with a challenge and the researcher develops and enhance their business consultancy experience.

Doctoral researchers first complete a consultancy training programme and are mentored throughout the programme by an experienced consultant.

The Accelerator

We fund students and staff up to £3,000 to work in your organisation to provide the rapid boost it needs to overcome short-term challenges. These might be to scope, investigate, or launch a new product or service.

The application process is jointly managed and once submitted we can have funding in place in a matter of days.

To discuss and scope your requirements, please contact Lorna Hards by emailing
