About the Event

Interested to learn about how academic-collaborations have helped with partners achieve innovation & address business or societal challenges?

The University of Manchester is hosting a mini-series of information sessions for academic researchers and business partners* to explore how and why academics work with partner organisations for collaborative research, including an overview of the mechanisms and impacts of collaborative working, how such relationships are established, and current funding opportunities.

Event 3 is on the theme Sustainable Environment & Infrastructure

Academic lead – Richard Kingston, Professor of Urban Planning and GISc


Discussion will cover how collaborations between the university, MCC and wider partners such as GMCA and TfGM can deliver sustainable infrastructure development for the region. We will also hear a KTP case study from Arup, describing why ARUP choose the KTP programme to help support the strategic ambitions of the project and what makes a successful academic and industry collaboration.
