The RVC has a rich history of developing partnerships which deliver high quality outputs for all stakeholders.
The RVC’s holistic approach to Knowledge Exchange combines basic, applied and clinical disciplines to examine and identify solutions to improve animal and human health and welfare. It does so through strategic partnerships with industry, academia and government agencies. These partnerships create interdisciplinary teams to focus on globally important challenges.
We work with universities both in the UK and globally to leverage the unique skills and resources available from each partner institution to deliver world-leading interdisciplinary research and Knowledge Exchange projects. Some examples are:
- UKRI GCRF One Health Poultry Hub
- UKRO GCRF Action Against Child Stunting Hub
- The Bloomsbury SET
- MedTech Super-Connector
RVC expertise also supports diverse and advanced training programs including the IFSTAL (Interdisciplinary Food Systems Teaching and Learning), The London Interdisciplinary Biosciences Consortium and the UK Food Systems Centre for Doctoral Training.
