OUR REPUTATION FOR IMPACT
The School has an established reputation for the impact of its research, i.e. engaging in research that is meaningful and responds to identifiable needs in society. We work with community groups, voluntary and public sector bodies, and industries both locally and globally, evidenced in longstanding and productive working relationships.
KTPS and CONSULTANCY
As a School we deliver between 30-40 Knowledge Transfer Partnerships (KTPs) with Industry: connecting industry-led projects with graduates and academics. Our staff and research groups have recognized expertise and experience, with access to cutting edge equipment and labs, and hence engage directly in consultancy for a variety of sectors (community, construction industry, academic and cultural). This activity generates over £1M in consultancy fees on an annual basis across the school.
If you are interested in working with us contact our research centres , through which most of the consultancy occurs or contact QUB’s award winning KTP office or consultancy services for further advice.
To ensure that our research is relevant, impactful and used by external bodies we seek to support staff and their research partners through a school impact strategy: this includes one-to-one support, tailored workshops, external stakeholder meetings and knowledge brokering events.
Research Impact in the school is supported by a Director of Impact and Impact Champions who are aligned to the school’s Research Clusters. Our SNBE impact team is in turn supported by the university’s Impact Officers in the Research and Enterprise Directorate and we are part of the wider network of impact champions across the faculty and university.
