Partnering with business

We address complex issues collectively to drive innovation and growth

The University of Salford works with businesses, from SMEs through to public organisation, non-profits and large corporates to drive innovation and growth using the university’s world-class research, facilities and connections.

Our services support businesses on their journey, whether they are looking to develop a new product or service, become more productive and sustainable, scale up their activity or upskill their workforce.

The benefit of working with a university is our ability to draw upon knowledge from a vast range of sectors and disciplines to bring them together and provide companies with a specific business solution. We can also act as an academic partner on collaborative projects, working with businesses to access the many funding streams available to companies.

Our ambition is firmly rooted in experience...

  • Over 60 years' experience delivering collaborative partnerships
  • Over 13,000 projects delivered with non-academic partners over the past ten years
  • Our Knowledge Transfer Partnerships have generated a projected return on investment of over 600%
  • 1 in 7 of our full-time PhD students are part of our industry PhD scheme
