Key unique services for businesses facilitated by the KBC include:
Joint research projects are an effective way to carry out research that is of interest to both the SCC and your business. These are often a great way to get access to high quality research talent and to achieve major innovations. There are several funding programmes that can cover a proportion of your costs (typically from 50-100% depending on the funding source and framework), making these types of project a very cost effective way of getting R&D done. There are also lighter weight types of engagement, such as acting as an advisor to a project, pledging access to expertise or resources, or offering letters of support for research proposals. Please contact us to discuss your requirements.
