Partnerships for AI Research and Innovation

As part of its mission to power-up research and innovation with AI, the CMI works to bring people and expertise together to develop new partnerships that focus on real world challenges.

We work in key areas including: healthcare, sustainable food, energy, advanced manufacturing, robotics and autonomous systems, digital twins, safety and security, urban living, education and the arts.  

We are seeking to build a wide range of partnerships with stakeholders in industry, government, higher education and non-profit organisations.

We will work with the Sheffield City Region to enable local industry and schools to benefit from our AI expertise. 

We can connect stakeholders and potential partners with our broad pool of talent and AI research expertise at Sheffield: we have outstanding researchers in all five faculties and at the AMRC. We work with vibrant community networks, and have state-of-the-art facilities and computing resource.

Partnerships at Sheffield

The University of Sheffield has a strong track record of collaborating with industry, government, charities and other leading UK universities to tackle important global issues. We partner with companies of all sizes from forward thinking SMEs to large international corporations including Boeing, Siemens, McLaren, and Rolls Royce. Our Advanced Manufacturing Group (AMG) has a global reputation for collaboratively developing solutions for real world problems. Our innovation, such as that at the Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre (AMRC), drives economic growth and productivity, and attracts significant inward investment to our city and region.  

Our researchers partner with organisations in the public, private and third sectors to translate their research, creating new ventures and opportunities for investors. Since 2019, 19 companies have spun out of the University. For example, our spin-out company Opteran is building novel systems for computer vision and autonomous navigation based on models of insect brains.

The CMI will work with the Partnerships and Regional Engagement team at the University of Sheffield to build future partnerships.
