Impact and knowledge exchange

Our School is committed to collaborating with commercial partners in order to advance the impact of our research. We continuously promote technology transfer and commercialisation of our research outcomes through IP, licensing and establishing spin-out companies. By doing this, we are able to contribute directly to knowledge exchange and the economy, both in the UK and globally.

What do we do?

We participate in small to large collaborative research projects and knowledge transfer projects, as well as sponsoring doctoral research students, delivering professional development, and offering consultancy services.

We can help commercial entities improve their competitiveness and productivity through government funded partnerships with our academics and researchers. If you are considering a joint project and would like to find out more, please get in touch with us at

Student using physics equipment


We have outstanding laboratory facilities where our researchers undertake a wide range of theoretical and experimental work, including our experimental nuclear physics detectors, high performance computing (HPC) clusters, microscopes and spectrometers, nuclear magnetic resonance imaging facilities, and state-of-the-art laboratories for soft matter research and characterisation.
