Impact and Knowledge Exchange
Working together with external partners accelerates the impact of our research achievements in the UK, global economy and society.
The Department of Physics is always interested in forging relationships and facilitate knowledge exchange with industry and relevant organisations.
We organise industry-academia workshops to enable cross-sector collaboration such as the International Symposium and co-innovation workshop and the Healthcare Instrumentation workshop.
We also work with and participate in international consortia to apply our knowledge and research to solve real-life problems such as our recent collaboration with partners in CERN to develop the High Performance Low Cost Ventilator (HPLV) that can potentially offer an affordable, reliable, safe and easy-to-operate ventilator to combat the COVID 19 pandemic.
Our partnerships and collaborations with external organisations are a vital part of our commitment to train doctoral students. We host the STFC Liverpool Big Data Science (LIV.DAT) Centre for Doctoral Training CDT where we work closely with industry, the public sector and other organisations on a wide range of activities including skills development, sponsorship, and research sandpits.
A brief overview of impact related activities concerning proof of concept and prototype development is available here.
Our business development team is responsible for the management and exploitation of IP generated by R&D in our department. We aim to maximise the outcome of our research to benefit industry, the University and the wider economy. We will:
- act as a broker between the University and your organisation
- recognise the value industrial expertise brings to a project
- identify the most appropriate funding mechanism to suit the type and needs of our joint collaborative project
- manage technology transfer projects to completion
