We deliver high impact research through collaboration with industry, and through commercial spin-outs.
Most of our research projects are at some level connected with commercial or government end-users. We have a track record of over 25 years of engagement with industry at all stages of research and development, from blue sky research to direct exploitation of mature technologies.
The following is a non-exhaustive list of past or ongoing industrial project partners:
- BAR Systems
- Bang & Olufsen
- Double negative
- Home Office
- Lionhead Studios
- Omni Perception
- The Foundry
Our Centre is a strategic partner in the BBC Audio Research Partnership announced 2011.
In addition to these collaborations, we have a strong record of industry spin-outs and technology transfer through Knowledge Transfer Partnerships (KTP). Spin-out companies include 3D body scanning provider Avatar-Me, and OmniPerception - founded in 2001, and located in the adjacent Surrey Research Park.
