Working With Partners

Our Business Development team can help you find a partner, meet the needs of industry, and connect you with the University's support services.

How is working with a partner different?

When working on a research project with a partner you may need to:

  • put a confidentiality agreement in place.
  • define the research questions together.
  • explain how the research outcomes can be used.
  • ensure your pricing aligns with the University's pricing framework
  • initiate a research contract.
  • implement project management to ensure milestones are delivered on time and to the quality expected by the client.

We can help

  • work through the steps above.
  • connect you with relevant industry and government partners.
  • align your research project with FAME and Faculty strategies.
  • connect you with the research support services you'll need to fund, initiate and manage your project.
