Rewarding Consultancy: annual results

Thanks to continued support from academics and the College, we continue to be the UK’s leading academic consultancy provider with an annual turnover of £16.5m.

Together we helped to generate an additional income of £6.3m for departments, through promoting, identifying and negotiating commercial access to expert advice and research equipment, and made a profit of £3.5m, which will be gifted to the College for distribution as unencumbered funds.

 

These funds will enable departments to purchase new equipment, retain research students and enhance staff development.

 

Despite turbulent economic times, academics across the College have put their know-how to work, with the departments of Public Health, Earth Sciences and Engineering, and Environmental Policy expanding their consultancy efforts this year.

 

Our success is founded on the internationally recognised expertise of the College’s academics and their inter-disciplinary and innovative approach to problem solving.
