University of Brighton base in Manor Royal, Crawley

The University of Brighton has set up a new base in the Manor Royal business district in Crawley to work alongside businesses and community partners in the Gatwick Diamond area.

It’s an ill wind that blows no good, and despite the disappointment of Brighton University’s Horsham campus plans coming to nothing, the Gatwick Diamond will at least see the benefit of a university presence in the region.

The Research and Enterprise Office is home for the new Gatwick Diamond team which comprises seven members of staff from the university’s Economic and Social Engagement department. The team is working with businesses in the area to highlight the university’s current offers and develop new partnerships within the Gatwick Diamond.

Opportunities arising from the university’s presence in the Gatwick Diamond include a series of ‘Insight’ seminars which take the university’s latest research findings directly to the doors of businesses, the opportunity to recruit graduates, including funding for internships, and the possibility of sharing in research and development through a Knowledge Transfer Partnership.

To get in touch with the Research and Enterprise Office, you can call 01293 510222 or email
