Break-out session;

Core to the University’s research strategy is to ensure the impact of our research and innovation; collaborative partnership working is key to being a leading applied University. Sheffield Hallam is delivering several flagship projects with this in mind, and these will be explored in this session. 

The University is developing post-graduate partnerships in research, taking the lead in working with the University Alliance to deliver a cross-institution flagship Doctoral Training Alliance in Applied Biosciences for Health and in Energy. These partnerships aim to deliver highly employable researchers with knowledge, expertise and skills in a growth sector for the UK.

 Our innovative partnerships with businesses and government also provide other examples of flagship partnership working. The Advanced Wellbeing Research Centre (AWRC) is new initiative supported by the Department of Health and is attracting significant corporate sponsorship. We also work in partnership with many other businesses, combining expertise and post-graduate training to deliver real-world impact.
