Our civic remit, business and community engagement, and research with impact is a powerful force in Northern Ireland.
Throughout our four campuses we’re investing millions in capital development, state of the art equipment, and innovative academic courses that will equip future talent for an emerging world. We believe working in partnership with industry is an essential element to our shared future, and our exciting developments offer a fantastic range of sponsorship and strategic giving opportunities for business.
The much-anticipated Greater Belfast Development will change the face of Higher Education in Northern Ireland with the influx of 15,500 additional staff and students contributing significantly to placemaking in the city. With the new build opening to students in Autumn 2021, we are now inviting conversations with businesses around the commercial, CSR and philanthropic opportunities in the campus.
We are keen to continue growing the number of corporate partners working with us on pioneering research and development in our many centres of excellence across NI, such as our Cognitive Analytics Research Lab (CARL) and our Legal Innovation Centre.
Similarly, the Northern Ireland City Deals projects Ulster is leading - Screen & Media Innovation Labs and Centre for Digital Healthcare Technology - include exciting possibilities for business engagement including workforce development programmes, unique sponsorship opportunities, research collaborations, and the appointment of outstanding individuals as academic Chairs to lead and drive industry-focused innovation in their specific fields.
