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!

Seedata, an Exeter-based SME and Science Park tenant, have worked with the University to commercialise the Intellectual Property form the University research and reduce the time taken to detect plagiarism four seconds. In addition to developing the idea, the new IP and software could lead to exciting business opportunities for Seedata. Read more >>
