How can we work together?

By combining academic and industry experience, we build knowledge that drives innovation, solutions, change and growth. We start the conversation around your most significant challenges and help match you with a researcher. Such projects would be co-scoped and represent a discrete piece of work completed within a defined time frame. 

Our researchers will share their knowledge and experiences to help your organisation solve difficult challenges. At the University of Sydney Business School we have over three hundred academics with deep expertise across a wide-range of industries. Often these conversations act as the starting point for fruitful collaborations.

Our scholars regularly collaborate with other leading universities and businesses across the globe and Australia to build knowledge. Partnering with the University of Sydney Business School allows organisations to be at the forefront of innovation and become credible thought leaders. Partner with us to co-develop evidence-based research and deliver events and white papers relevant to your stakeholders. 

Our researchers are at the forefront of developing and applying cutting-edge theories, analytic and research methods. Partnering with us can deliver new insights and perspectives from complex data sets.

If you have a specific research question, a commissioned project or consultancy arrangement could help you get the answers. These projects are co-scoped with us and your organisation and represent a discrete piece of work completed within a set time frame. 

Partnered research projects often qualify for government funding through schemes such as the Australian Research Council’s Linkage program or AusIndustry’s Cooperative Research Centre Projects (CRC-P). These funding opportunities can be a great way to leverage the funds that you have available for research no matter how large or small your organisation is.

Case studies

Stata's primary mission is to build a bridge between the theoretical frontier and the practical application and to make this connection as smooth as possible. Working with Prof. Artem Prokhorov allows Stata to identify and understand the theoretical methods that have great potential applicability in practice.
