Find a consultant

Connecting academics and industry

Cambridge Enterprise offers an important and effective consultancy service which enables the University to share its knowledge with government, industry and the public sector, and make a direct impact on society.

Our goal is to make the process of consultancy easier for academics and for the organisations in need of their expertise. Our service covers the administrative issues associated with consultancy projects, including negotiation of contract terms and conditions, invoicing, debt collection, income distribution and the arrangements for use of University facilities.

While we work primarily with researchers who have already been contacted by potential consultancy clients, we are happy to use our networks and experience to help organisations find a consultant.

The University of Cambridge has many specialist facilities embedded throughout its departments, from High Performance Computing to mass spectrometry labs. External clients can make use of these facilities through a consultancy contract with Cambridge Enterprise. This may involve contracting with a University expert. For example, an academic consultant could carry out analysis on a client’s samples and provide the client with the raw data and a report on the results.
