LSE aims to support and enable strategic knowledge exchange between companies and academia.
In support of this aim the Research Division develops and manages long-term research partnerships with industry. Such partnerships are designed to deliver the full range of knowledge and expertise to partners while supporting and driving forward the School's research profile.
We provide an informed entry point into the School and assist firms and industries in identifying how their core business interests can be matched to the School's research expertise. We design bespoke partnership structures (governance, agenda-setting, deliverables, networking, etc) that generate the most productive working relationships.
We are also responsible for managing research partnership projects, operating as an intermediary to ensure that business and research interests are brought together in the most productive and mutually rewarding fashion possible.
