IIB has had a transformative impact on the external engagement work of social scientists at Exeter. When it comes to impact support, Exeter’s reputation is as strong as any UK university. My own work with policymakers in the World Bank and the European Commission’s Regulatory Scrutiny Board has been supported by skilled IIB professionals – without their advice and ability to identify key funds our partnerships could not strengthen and grow.

IIB have been really helpful with identifying relevant businesses consultants for developing a GW4 project I am involved in. It’s been great to work with Patrick Frake in IIB and really helpful to have this support at the university, as I really would not know where to begin looking!

Leading a green revolution in defence and off-highway transport

Engineering experts from the University of Exeter have collaborated with British designer and developer of high mobility defence vehicles, Supacat, to pioneer a hybrid electrical powered version of the All-Terrain Mobility Platform (the ATMP), one of the world’s most popular, versatile and battle-proven off road military vehicles.

The success of the project is the result of a unique collaboration between the University of Exeter and Supacat, the defence business of Devon-based SC Group, funded by the Government’s Knowledge Transfer Partnership (KTP) scheme.



The journey from researcher to entrepreneur

The OTA Water team wanted to bridge the gap between business idea and delivery. They developed smart rainwater systems using The Internet of Things technology.

The SETsquared Exeter team helped Dr Pete Melville-Shreeve and the team to access support with intellectual property and access to grants. Pete was also introduced to a range of initiatives to boost the business such as The Environmental Futures and Big Data Impact Lab and Pitch@Palace.
