The Knowledge Exchange & Enterprise Network (KEEN) helps organisations increase profitability and growth through working with a regional university.
Led by the University of Wolverhampton, KEEN works by putting a recent graduate (known as an Affiliate) into an organisation to work on a strategic growth project, with ongoing support from experienced university experts. Companies benefit from part funding by the European Regional Development Fund, allowing them to recruit talented graduates and access cutting edge university knowledge throughout the duration of the project.
From furniture design through to web development to environmental sciences and engineering - there is no such thing as a typical KEEN project. Each one is bespoke, built around particular business requirements.
Since its launch in 2012, there have been over 160 collaborations to date with graduate project managers making an impact from day one. KEEN makes a real difference to organisations, graduates and university experts, please visit the pages relevant to you and contact us to find out more.
