Research strategy development

Drive innovation through creating research strategy and partnerships

The UK (industry and universities) spent over £61 billion research and development (R&D) in 2020, and investing in research is at the heart of any company to deliver performance and growth (1).

For smaller herbal or nutrition companies with fewer resources, developing a research strategy is not easy, and it is hard to juggle short term and long term priorities. You may have questions like:

  • How can we grow our research capability
  • Who are our internal stakeholders
  • How can we deliver short term wins and long term goals
  • How can we grow our ecosystem and investment
  • How can we use the data in our communications

Research strategy development:

  • We can create you a research strategy from scratch.
  • We will work with your internal teams and help build external partnerships.
  • We can help bring in students with fresh ideas and to carry out lower risk projects.
