The IIB teams are experts in delivering impact, building relationships and generating income.
Innovation, Impact and Business is divided into three teams:
Impact and Partnership Development
Led by Sean Fielding
This team supports the promotion and funding of impact and engagement. The team works in interdisciplinary, thematic groups addressing College priorities for project development and/or income generation, leading to outcomes which can be captured for future Impact Case Studies.
Regional Impact and Innovation
Led by Chris Evans
This team supports bidding for funds from regional sources; manages innovation support services such as the Innovation Centre and Science Park, and provides an access point for small and medium enterprises (SMEs) in Exeter and Cornwall.
They also provide regional stakeholder management and policy development to maximise the University’s reputation in the region.
Commercialisation, Contracts and Programmes
Led by Dr Neil Hayes
This team supports the organisation and delivery of projects relating to Intellectual Property (IP) exploitation, consultancy, commercial tenders and funder programmes such as Knowledge Transfer Partnerships (KTPs). They also keep track of investments in projects, proof of concept, commercial projects, licences and shareholdings.
