Ignite+ event series for business engagement

The University of Bath's fully-funded Ignite+ event series provides a launchpad for business collaborations by partnering with our world-leading researchers.

About Ignite+

We support business engagement


The Ignite+ logo

Ignite+ is a fully-funded event series from the University of Bath for businesses and external organisations to engage with us and discover how our research can address your challenges. Each Ignite+ event puts a spotlight on different sector themes, of which the University has strengths in both research and its external application. Businesses attending Ignite+ events can hear from our academic experts and engage in Q&As and round table discussions to explore how we can work together.


Ignite+ Bitesize

Shorter business-focused Ignite+ events are also available for our researchers

We also deliver Ignite+ Bitesize for academic staff at the University of Bath. These shorter and more concise Ignite+ events are only 20 minutes in duration, providing information on key topics and mechanisms for external research collaborations.

Ignite+ Bitesize events

Watch our Ignite+ Bitesize events which are recorded to share best practice.
Topics include Consultancy; Facilities and Infrastructure; IP and Commercialisation; and Business Engagement. Recordings are restricted to University login.

Examples of Ignite+ events


Since the Ignite+ series was launched in 2022 we have run events on Innovate UK's Knowledge Transfer Partnerships (KTP) scheme, linking forward thinking businesses with the UK's world class knowledge base, and on the future of the augmented human, exploring neuro technological interfaces, sensor technology in sport and neurotech regulation.
