If you’re a business or organisation of any size within the private, public or third sectors, based locally, nationally or internationally and would like to access academic expertise and specialist knowledge to drive your business idea or project forward, an Industry & Academic Partnership with Birmingham City University could help you achieve the results you need. 

Innovation Institutes

With the wealth of expertise and specialist knowledge across the four faculties of Birmingham City University you may not know which faculty, school or academics to approach to initiate your collaboration. That’s why we have created our three Innovation Institutes, to listen to your requirements and build the team of academic experts and specialists needed to deliver on your business or project objectives.
