What is Portfolio?
Portfolio is a long running collaborative research programme initiated by WRc as the most efficient way for our clients to reduce their costs and risks, and gain from sharing knowledge and experience with others. It is innovation through collaboration.
The programme allows companies to jointly fund research for their specific needs. Running for over 20 years, project ideas are proposed by experts within WRc based on contact with our clients across the industry.
Research is delivered which focuses on shared needs that relate to specific problems and issues faced by our clients on a daily basis. These concerns can relate to operational problems, regulatory issues or preparation for future challenges; they are identified and developed through open consultation and feedback and delivered in co-operation with client group.
We collaborate not only with our clients, but also with delivery partners, who include academic and other research institutions.
