Collaborate with us

Our region is world-renowned for bringing together major businesses, start-ups and universities to develop cutting-edge technology and fresh ways of thinking.

We work with industry partners to develop innovative solutions which recognise and build on our region’s strengths.

The GW4 Alliance has a strong track record of working with non-academic organisations to develop new research, train future academic and industry leaders and develop innovative solutions.

We collaborate with industry partners in the following areas:

  • Research and Innovation: Many of our research and innovation communities collaborate with a wide range of non-academic partners to drive discoveries which will have a real-world impact. Major examples include: our high performance computing partnership, Isambard, with the Met Office and Cray Inc, and arts and humanities research that answers organisational needs, Bridging the Gap.
  • Doctoral Training: We offer industry placements with over 350 organisations, including global businesses (Airbus, Arup, Google), research  organisations (Rothamsted, CEH, DSTL), government bodies (Met Office, GCHQ, NHS) and third sector organisations (English Heritage, BBC, Cadw).

If you are interested in working with us or developing a collaborative initiative, we want to hear from you.
