Consultation services are built around assisting entrepreneurs and inventors within the technology space. In many cases, they require assistance during the proposal writing stage, to access funding from government or private sector funding programmes to assist in developing their products.
The first step is to analyse their product development needs, developing a functional requirement specification and costing of the development that may be used during the proposal process. Successful applicants are further supported with project management, technology advice and other critical co-ordination activities to make the best of their product development process.
Clients are further assisted through the University Technology Transfer Office, with advice on Intellectual Property, funding programmes and partnership opportunities to assist with product development and commercialisation strategy.
