Together with the Research and Enterprise Team (RED), LD3 helps academics engage early with industry.
LD3 partnerships has considerably increased over the past 5 years and includes:
- Leading pharmaceutical companies
- Small Biotech companies
- Design consultancy companies
- Leading makers of medical devices
Early company engagement facilitates a more rapid progression of projects through the translation pipeline and provides a better understanding of deliverables, milestones and timelines, three keys to successful projects.
LD3 supports industry engagement and collaboration events, providing funding for industry exchange programmes via the UKRI - Impact Acceleration Accounts (IAA) award. These events facilitate development of research partnerships between Industry and the University of Leicester.
IAA funding is currently supporting engagement with:
- Astra Zeneca
