Business services and consultancy

Our expertise is helping to drive business forward: we have an unequivocal commitment to creating jobs and growth in the East of England region.

We have created the Knowledge Gateway – our 43 acre science and business park – to deliver the benefits that a world-class university can provide in a knowledge-based economy.

Through great infrastructure, co-locating Essex researchers, businesses and the public and voluntary sector, we want to make a step-change in using our research to improve productivity, support the creative sector and manage increasing pressures on public services.

The Knowledge Gateway is home to Parkside Office Village at our Colchester Campus, now home to a thriving cluster of 15+ knowledge-based businesses and our Institute for Analytics and Data Science which is engaged in R&D, professional development, and innovation for data exploration and big data.

We will soon be developing stage two of Parkside Office Village, so find out more about how to locate your business here and become part of our growing community.

As a university we also offer excellent business consultancy and other excellent on-campus services, to including business incubation facilities at our Southend Campus. We can help you develop your employees, you can hire our high-calibre graduates, and we can support business growth and improvement through the national Knowledge Transfer Partnerships scheme.

Our offer to business also includes excellent conference and syndicate venues, plus delivery of outstanding corporate events.
