What we do
The research produced by the UK~IRC has a direct bearing on how firms will innovate in the future. We provide advice to policy-makers who will regulate the development of industries. Our research projects include service innovation at the sector level, and business practices and open innovation, which will provide relevant insight into how firms innovate and opportunities for best practice.
Our networks ensure that the latest academic knowledge is applied to real-world issues for the benefit of government and industry. We use our Knowledge Hub to engage with firms and disseminate our research findings and to interact more closely with the needs and ideas which firms have for development, for example through presentation at the US Industry Fellows Forum.
Each of our research projects has a clear industrial engagement remit and during their remaining lifespan will seek to extend their findings by working with firms in the relevant sector. If you are interested in working with us, please contact the UK~IRC team.
