The Business Engagement Forum (BEF), was established to provide a regular base level of engagement to our key business stakeholders and other non-academic collaborators. Our aim is to develop a community of enterprise and non-enterprise partners that represent the whole of our remit and research landscape.
Strategic Advisory Teams and Groups help develop our strategy. It is essential that they contain business experts as well as academic experts.
Our Peer Review College assists us by providing expert, independent, informed comments on research proposals submitted to us for consideration for funding. Its members also assist us by sitting on our peer review panels. Business involvement in the College is vital for a robust peer review process.
