Working with Nature's Raincoats
We are happy to discuss joint research funded by direct contract research funding, UK Research Council (RCUK) part-sponsored collaborative research, Technology Strategy Board (TSB) part-sponsored applied oriented research or EU Framework (EU FP7) projects. TSB also provide matched funding for Knowledge Transfer Partnerships (KTPs) aimed at improving business processes.
We are happy to discuss joint research funded by direct contract research funding or EU Framework (EU FP7) projects. Of particular interest to small/medium sized companies is the EU FP7 capacities programme that funds two or more SMEs, including UK SMEs. The UK Trade & Investment (UKTI) Services provides advice aimed at overseas companies.
Academics and PhD Students
We are always happy to discuss research projects with academic colleagues across the world. We can also act as PhD supervisors for students who are self-funded or sponsored by their governments or others. International funding information for researchers is available from the UK Research Councils, The Royal Society and The British Council.
Exhibitions and Public Understanding
To see the relevance of our work to the London Olympics 2012 see the RCUK/Royal Institution Video of Cutting Edge 2012: Research Behind Sailing.
We are pleased to consider requests for a Nature's Raincoats lecture, exhibition or workshop in the Newcastle, Nottingham or Oxford areas.
If it is possible to cover travelling expenses we can consider locations around the UK or possibly overseas.
