What is innovation funding?
Innovation funding includes diversified funding streams to generate University income that is underpinned by economic, social or environmental outputs that make a significant difference in the real world.
These non-traditional funding streams have allowed the University of Plymouth to invest and develop applicable R&D innovations to allow industry partners and academics to stay ahead of their competitors in areas of research such as maritime cybersecurity, e-Health products and services, marine-related technologies, agricultural and sustainability technologies, electro-microscopy applications, business productivity, big data and analytics. Funding is often delivered with businesses or other external stakeholders but can still support new research posts, buy new equipment, lead to publications, impact case studies and support wider research. The focus of our team is to develop partnership projects with businesses or other organisations where we can translate the expertise within the University to make an economic, social or environmental impact.
