Commercial and Non-Academic Partners

Commercial and non-academic partners are being sought to enable development of opportunities arising from the Nitrous Oxide Focus Group project's research. Partners may benefit from:

  • access to cutting edge strategies, technology or innovation at the development stage, with first option to support (if appropriate)
  • opportunity through membership of the scientific steering/advisory group to view and steer development of project outcomes
  • the potential availability of the nitrous oxide expertise of, and technical developments within, UEA to your corporate community
  • a further opportunity would be to champion adoption of strategies, technology or innovation in the wider community (beyond your corporate community), including your customer base

Academic Partners

  • University of East Anglia
  • John Innes Centre
  • Institute of Food Research
  • University of Oxford
  • University of Aberdeen
  • University of Manchester

For a full list of academics involved in Nitrous Oxide Focus Group research please see ‘Research/Expertise'.

Advisory Teams

The research projects will have broad, long-term implications for many industries and sectors, and we are therefore seeking to assemble advisory teams of representatives from agriculture and industry who may have a long-term interest in our results. Those on the advisory teams will not only have an opportunity to offer expert opinion (and influence) on the potential direction of the research and market needs, but will gain early access to innovative research outcomes that could impact (positively) directly upon their commercial interests. If you would like to discuss possible involvement please contact us.
