Opportunities for organisations

Opportunities for organisations

Businesses, public sector and non-profit organisations can benefit from expertise, funding and support from Royal Holloway’s social science researchers.

Royal Holloway is a proactive Civic University that cares deeply about driving positive societal change through partnerships and collaborations. Our Social Science Impact Accelerator Programme offers a range of opportunities for organisations to share knowledge and collaborate on projects to serve the diverse communities in our dynamic and complex region, the UK, and internationally.

How can my organisation benefit?

  • Build strategic relationships with leading academics in your sector.
  • Receive expert academic support to address challenges faced by your sector or organisation.
  • Develop and pilot innovative products, services or methods, events or training in collaboration with academic experts.
  • Embed a research expert or a PhD student in your organisation to collaborate on a series of agreed activities, funded by Royal Holloway.
  • Spend time working at Royal Holloway to carry out a collaborative project or with an academic host, and share your insight with researchers and students.

Royal Holloway offers selected projects cash funding, researcher time and support, based on a competitive proposal assessment process. We ask that our partners who benefit from this support commit some resources to the project (in kind or in cash).

Get in touch

We are particularly interested in hearing from prospective partners in our region – as defined by our campuses in Egham in London, and including Surrey, West London, Berkshire, Buckinghamshire and the M4 corridor.

We welcome all enquiries at this stage, with no requirement to be too specific on need. However, you may like to share:

  • what areas of research would be most helpful for your organisation
  • whether you are interested in a residency/placement (hosting an academic at your organisation or spending time at Royal Holloway on a short-term placement)
  • any ongoing/upcoming projects you hope to collaborate on
  • any areas of challenge where you hope to seek academic expertise.

Please register your interest or email us at if you have any questions.

You can also have a look at our experts directory where you can look up researchers by keyword.
