As a research-intensive university, we understand the value of developing partnerships which can help us expand the reach of our research.


We work closely with a large range of institutions and private companies on both short and long-term partnerships. We collaborate on commercial ventures, help organisations secure funds for research, grant access to equipment and licenses, and share our academic expertise.

We maintain particularly strong strategic research relationships with our partner institutes and world-leading experts from across the Norwich Research Park. We are a co-founder of the Aurora network, made up of nine research-focused European universities all committed to working together to produce internationally relevant research.
