SETsquared, alongside partner universities, is working to facilitate the process of technologies originating from university research by putting in place a number of schemes and programmes which not only are helping researchers work more innovatively but also ensuring external business is able to tap into the expertise and resources available at the universities.

As well as being part of a high-profile network, businesses have a direct link to the research talent and expertise of the six scale-up partner universities (Bath, Bristol, Cardiff, Exeter, Southampton and Surrey).

As part of the Scale-Up Programme, companies are first to find out about opportunities for investment in innovation from public and private funders. There are a range of opportunities to access bid support funds which helps build compelling collaborative R&D bids alongside scale-up partner universities.
