Knowledge Exchange Framework

At the University of Derby we are committed to supporting the local community and work closely with businesses and organisations to deliver applied research and knowledge exchange.

How knowledge sharing benefits our partners

The University is the only higher education institution in Derbyshire and our Strategic Plan articulates our role of ‘Being a Force for Positive Impact’ on the economic, social, cultural, educational and environmental prosperity of our home. Our collaborative approach has enabled organisations to benefit from access to industry expertise, graduate talent and higher-level skills.

The Knowledge Exchange Framework (KEF), provides an indication of the University’s engagement with businesses and community and below are just a few examples of successful partnership delivery.
