Commercial Development

The Commercial Development team resides within the Office of Commercial and Estate Development and is focused on promoting commercial opportunities into sustainable and profitable commercial ventures that support the core activities of UWS – teaching and research – with alternative sources of funding.

Commercial Development identifies opportunities to leverage UWS's assets and implements such initiatives to generate additional funding to support the University's core teaching & research activities. This involves adding value to land and other assets through the development of innovative and commercially attractive solutions directly as well as with the engagement of specialist service providers. One of the most important aspects of commercial development is the focus on creating strong broad based synergies between the University's core teaching and research activities and the Commercial operation.
