Abertay University is committed to establishing strong, beneficial links with partners in the business community, both in Scotland and beyond, in order to promote innovation, knowledge transfer and economic development.

Several mechanisms exist to encourage and facilitate these links:

Digital prototype grant funding
Abertay University’s Business Development Office recently managed the awarding of grants of up to £25,000 for small companies (based anywhere in the UK) developing their own games or other forms of interactive digital content. The aim of the project was to foster economic growth, facilitate job creation, and improve skills development in the sector. Visit our dedicated website.

Contract research
The University’s Schools and Specialist Research Centres carry out research projects in collaboration with industrial sponsors.

Knowledge generation and transfer
The University actively seeks to develop and exploit knowledge generated from its research base in partnership with industry.

Services to business
The University is an established provider of services to industry developed around the expertise of its staff and its excellent facilities.
