Research and Development

Sheffield Hallam University is committed to enabling healthier lives, building stronger communities and driving future economies.

We’re ranked in the top 5 modern universities for our research. An impressive 65% of it is rated as internationally excellent or world-leading (Research Excellence Framework (REF) 2014).

As our Research case studies demonstrate, our research has real world impact. This means we apply our work to real business problems — working collaboratively with organisations across sectors to achieve meaningful results.

So whether you're looking for general improvements or a solution to a specific problem, our internationally-renowned research can help.

We also have a range of funding options to make the project even more accessible.

How we can help

We work across sectors, from healthcare technologies to engineering and manufacturing.

Our services include

  • market research
  • product development
  • prototype design
  • process simulation
  • materials engineering
  • feasibility studies
  • evidencing marketing claims

We can help you with activities that bridge the gap between pure research and commercial projects. These create exciting opportunities for next generation products and services.

We can also partner you with students, academics or researchers to help your business reach its full potential. For example, our Knowledge Transfer Partnerships (KTPs) combine the expertise of our academic staff with the fresh thinking of a recent graduate.

We are keen to explore any advantages within our market which may add value to our clients... working with Sheffield Hallam University we have now developed further ‘technical’ options which could add value from an operational and commercial impact on our services.
