We offer a number of opportunities for business partners to sponsor events, activities, student prizes and even facilities in the School of Physics & Astronomy. For the School this provides not just income to support our activities, but vital links with the relevant industrial partners. For our sponsors, it provides opportunities to promote themselves as suppliers, recruiters and collaborators.
