Enterprise supports a wide range of collaborations between academic staff and external partners to share, expand and enrich knowledge beyond the boundaries of academia.

The Enterprise Office offers support and guidance on consultancy, contract research, collaborative research funding and IP management.

Our academic staff have proven experience delivering collaborative research projects. A third of Goldsmiths’ research projects are collaborative, and we work with partners of all kinds: start-ups to global brands; local social enterprises to major charities; independent galleries to national museums.

For academic staff, collaboration brings new insight and perspective on research questions. For partners, working with Goldsmiths offers access to new knowledge, innovative thinking and flexible ways of working together.
