Research Accelerator

Bridging the gap between academics and business

The relationship between academia and business is more important than ever

Business leaders need and want access to current thinking and ground-breaking research to move their strategies forward for the future.

Valuable research with the potential to bring about global transformation, could remain hidden. More collaboration is needed.

It's time to bring leading minds together to make a real difference to the world

And we know it’s doable – but why does it take a global pandemic to get everyone facing in the same direction, collaborating with a common purpose?

The 4iforum Research Accelerator is a collaborative network, connecting academic partners to a business community that actively invests in education, mentoring and networking.

Through dialogic forums, the 4iforum Research Accelerator ecosystem expedites the impact of emerging academic research in the business community, responding to societal need, in order to increase the commercial opportunities generated from research investment.

The next generation companies spinning out from universities will drive the economy forward
