Academics from the School of Sport and Health Sciences and the School of Business and Law will work with Guild Care, a Worthing based social care charity, to develop a new framework to assess the social impact of adult social care interventions, informing service design and to attract investment in new innovative approaches.
Consort Frozen Foods, a frozen food and ice cream specialists based in Burgess Hill, will also work with academics from the School of Business and Law to embed management knowledge and tools to critically analyse business performance and identify and exploit opportunities to diversify sales into new markets, eliminate seasonality issues and improve overall profitability.
Simon Renton, from Consort Frozen Foods, said: “Harnessing the university's RISE project as a stepping stone, this full-fledged KTP endeavour, underpinned by academic research and fresh graduate insight, paints an exciting trajectory for our expansion.”
With partnerships ranging from a concise twelve months to an extensive three years, KTP projects not only bridge expertise gaps but also embed transformative knowledge, systems, and methodologies.
The university has delivered 280 KTP projects to date, with 90% exceeding their objectives, earning them A grades, as acknowledged by Innovate UK.
Liz Johnson, KTP Manager at the University of Brighton, said: “KTPs are a prime example of effective innovation and collaboration between businesses and universities. Our projects with Guild Care, Iberian and Consort Frozen Foods will draw on wide-ranging academic expertise to deliver real-world innovation, addressing complex business challenges head-on.”
