    Research

    For SMEs the investment to resource progressive research programmes can be prohibitive. Companies looking to create revolutionary products, who can identify and access cutting edge, exploratory research at a fraction of the cost of undertaking it in-house, have a key competitive advantage. This is why many of the world’s most innovative businesses get their best ideas from academic research.
