Opportunities for Collaboration

We have a proven track record delivering industry-focussed research through MSc and PhD Projects, CASE studentships, joint industry consortium projects and stand-alone research projects. We have a flexible approach to collaboration with industry and would like to speak to companies who are interested in working with us. For further information, please contact Dr Rachael Spraggs, Petroleum Leeds Executive Director.

Joint Industry Projects

Our joint industry projects (JIPs) exploit our research and knowledge transfer expertise and utilise the specialist facilities available in our research laboratories. We are happy to speak to potential new sponsors
