SEND three-year research projects

This programme has now ended. Please visit our Business Support page for information on current support and collaboration opportunities.


A key element of Keele University’s Smart Energy Network Demonstrator (SEND) project is a collaborative Research, Development & Innovation (RD&I) product development programme based around industry-led university research.

The programme is currently underway with a team of 16 Graduate Researchers and Engineers working to support Stoke-on-Trent and Staffordshire-based small or medium-size enterprises (SMEs).

Each of the three-year RD&I projects consists of a programme of collaborative research and development activity, delivered by a graduate researcher and a University-based team working with a Stoke-on-Trent or Staffordshire SME.
