The Directorate of Engagement & Partnerships brings together 6 teams: Academic Legal Services, Campaigns & Development, Keele University Science & Innovation Park, Partnership Development, Local Growth and Research Support Services. These teams support the research and educational missions of Schools, Research Institutes & Faculties within the University and enable a wide range of public and private sector organisations to work in partnership with the University.
Over the last 15 years Mark has developed a number of successful models for university-business engagement regionally, nationally and internationally. These have included large-scale economic regional regeneration programmes, capital investment for collaborative research, SME-led postgraduate research programmes, corporate research and training partnerships and most recently, a major programme of SME-led research collaboration in China.
