One-to-One Diagnostic Consultation

For all businesses, there will be an initial consultative review, to discuss and identify where The Bridge can use their expertise to offer support, targeted research or training for your organisation to grow. 

Project conceptualised & defined

With your help, experts will develop, define and document a concerted research project, including details of the personnel involved, instrumentation to be accessed, timescales and deliverables.

Project management & delivery

Academics & doctorally-qualified scientists and engineers will work on your research projects to generate the highest quality data and results, all overseen by professional, dedicated management and liaison staff at The Bridge.

Reporting, closure or redefine

At the end of the project, The Bridge will produce a professional and comprehensive report of the results, hold a final dissemination meeting and redefine goals for future research, if relevant.
