With partners in architecture and construction, Oxford Brookes University has won almost £300K of government funding for KTP projects to develop and validate new products based on its research in architectural technology.
Working with The Rooflight Company in Oxfordshire, one KTP will create and commercialise novel architectural products that will give the company an ongoing capacity for innovation. The initial product range will be based on sustainable architecture research that the university has undertaken over a number of years in major international collaborations. The partners are currently recruiting a KTP Associate with product development experience, who will lead the project under supervision from researchers at the university.
Meanwhile, Fusion Building Systems will use the university's expertise to develop the efficiency and cost-effectiveness of its steel frame building system, with the aim of opening up new markets. Its light gauge steel technology has immense potential, but will benefit from enhanced designs thanks to a combination of computer modelling and structural testing. Two KTP Associates have already been recruited to work at the company's Northampton base.
The Knowledge Transfer Partnerships programme has received an immediate funding boost that will see up to 200 extra grants awarded by April 2018 to support collaborations between companies and universities.
Oxford Brookes KTP Managers John Corlett and Anna Verghese are already working on applications with local companies in areas as varied as life sciences, materials technology and new software for healthcare.
