In addition, the group encourages staff to expand their contributions by developing student entrepreneurship within the University, continuing to carry out and promote research and knowledge exchange activities, engaging with business communities, increasing the number of collaborations with researchers from the UK and abroad to deliver research impact, increasing the number of publications in academic journals, and drawing in more staff to become active in measurable outcomes, such as income generation. 

The group also supports the members by carrying out workshops or other activities requested by members.
