Aberystwyth Bangor Strategic Alliance
A major objective of the Partnership is to develop innovative ways of supporting, managing and developing research programmes; from winning grants and other forms of sponsorship, through the exchange of knowledge between academic and industrial researchers to the successful exploitation of that knowledge by companies and society more broadly. Collaboration between the professionals responsible for these activities at UWA and UWB has been established and is focused on supporting research grant applications and knowledge exchange activities. Capacity and expertise are being shared to address the priorities outlined in the Welsh Assembly Government's Winning Wales strategy:
In 2009 a fifth Centre of the Partnership that was created in order to build on the existing joint enterprise activities between Commercialisation and Consultancy Services (CCS) in Aberystwyth and their opposite number: the Research Innovation Office (RIO, formerly UIB) in Bangor. This new Centre will formalise a structure and ensure good communication between the two departments and will examine opportunities to support the potential broader collaborations
between the Partnership and other Welsh institutions.
CKITE also has responsibility for delivering the Partnership’s Enterprise related targets.
