With permission from the Head of Department, staff can undertake up to 30 days consultancy per year. The consultancy must be related to their academic activity within the College.
Consultancy allows Royal Holloway employees to earn extra income in addition to developing strong links with industry, charity and government partners and broadening their professional development. Royal Holloway consultancy projects have also generated ideas for novel research directions and commercial applications of existing research outputs.
Potential clients are encouraged to contact Royal Holloway via our Consultancy page and are able to use the Find an expert link on the right. Financial sector clients may also contact the College via the Libera Consultant Network described below.
Once notified of a potential consultancy opportunity, Research & Enterprise will endeavour to work alongside the consultant to reach an agreement with the client in the shortest time possible.
Following notification of completion of a project, we will arrange for invoicing and for the distribution of proceeds.
All consultancy contracts and related agreements must be signed by a Director of Royal Holloway Enterprise Ltd: a wholly owned subsidiary which allows the College to offer commercial services to business.
