REN has four Relationships Managers to help academic staff to build relationships with private, public and not-for-profit partners to ensure the research done at UEA leads to impact. They can help you work with business support networks, support funding applications, organise industry-facing events and help to manage the University Impact Accelerator Accounts in order to enable impact generation through schemes such as knowledge transfer partnerships, licensing of intellectual property, consultancy, graduate careers and externally-funded research.
The relationship Managers each align with specific industry sectors:
Chris Blincoe - Digital, Heritage and Creative
Richard Clarke - Social Sciences and Healthcare
Sue Johnson - (Sue Johnson- Consultancy Manager- is covering Science on an interim basis whilst recruitment of a new Relationship Manager is ongoing)
Andrew Whilding - Engineering.
