Scoping options for research commercialisation and impact




Versus Arthritis

Share this project

Reviewing business development options to support impact from research commercialisation and investment for impact.

Versus Arthritis was formed in 2018 following a merger of Arthritis Care and Arthritis Research UK. Their research funding supports advances in the treatment and management of arthritis.

Working closely with a project team within the organisation, Research Consulting supported a review of options for research commercialisation and income generation. The work was delivered through desk research, interviews with stakeholders in other charities, in industry, in technology transfer and other funding organisations. A business case for preferred options was developed and presented.

Research Consulting fully understood the brief and used their expertise to help refine it. The outputs were what we were hoping for and the team demonstrated their flexibility through navigating between the strategic and tactical challenges that we brought as clients. They are also very knowledgeable, with a friendly and relaxed style which suited the team that commissioned them. We would most certainly recommend Research Consulting to other clients.
