"Research and Enterprise activities are an important part of the mission of any university. Not only do they enhance the teaching of the institution, they are also a crucial part of the service that the institution provides to the external community.
"The University of Greenwich has served its external communities for over a century now. Over the years it has provided education, new knowledge, and expertise in the application of knowledge to the needs of business and community for a wide range of regional, national, and international stakeholders. We are a 'research informed' institution, where our research and enterprise work influences almost every aspect of our operations.
"Nowhere is this more apparent than in our relationships with partners in our community. We aim to undertake research which is directly relevant to their needs, and to be highly skilled in helping them apply new concepts and techniques for the benefit of their organisations, through a variety of sophisticated knowledge transfer mechanisms. We work with companies throughout the spectrum, from large international corporations to local start-ups. We provide research and expertise to a range of other organisations, including local and regional authorities, and non-governmental organisations. We work closely with both governments and some of the major charities in the world to improve the lives of people living in developing countries.
"And this work is meeting with success. We are currently experiencing unprecedented growth in both the demand for our research and enterprise services from external partners, and the volume of our research activities.
"We are an outward-looking organisation that sees its research and enterprise mission to be primarily one of providing high-quality research, development, and consultancy expertise which is relevant to its many communities both at home and abroad. Don't hesitate to contact any of our team if we can be of assistance – we are keen to work with you."
