Partnership Development

We have a range of services designed to support the growth and development of you and your organisation. Our team of Partnership Development Managers work with you to understand your specific needs and can suggest solutions that draw upon our academic expertise. 

From consultancy, open-innovation sandpits and contract research to part-funded business support programmes, such as Knowledge Transfer Partnerships, we offer a comprehensive range of services which can be tailored to suit your needs, regardless of size, sector or location. 


Clinical Trials

At ARU we are proud to offer a clinical trials service. Our aim is to work with hospital trusts, healthcare providers, commissioners and commercial companies to increase opportunities for patients to take part in both investigator led and commercial trials.

We offer investigators (e.g. doctors, nurses and allied health professionals) the support to take their study from a basic idea and develop it into a well-designed study. We also work with businesses looking to test their products in a clinical environment. The support we offer ranges from providing advice on the regulatory environment in the UK, to helping to plan and run large-scale studies.



Funding Opportunities

If you’re an SME looking to develop a new product or service, we can connect you to some of our subsidised knowledge exchange funding programmes including Knowledge Transfer Partnerships (KTPs).
KTPs are funded by the UK government through Innovate UK. For SMEs 67% of the total project costs are funded. They’re designed to help businesses create innovative solutions that encourage growth and embed valuable resources, knowledge and people, into the business. Projects typically run from 18 months to 3 years in length.
