Team Placement

An Academic in your team: cutting-edge results

What do you get?

Scientific input

Inject scientific expertise into your team’s project for nuanced and relevant outcomes.  The Academic expert (10 yrs study + research / teaching / publication experience) will enhance decision-making with an informed perspective.

Innovative outcomes 

An Academic expert will work with your team to analyse project needs and scope, think through issues, extend ideas, and bring in thinking from valid sources worldwide to foster innovative solutions and competitiveness.  

Critical thinking

In working with an Academic, your team will develop a mindset of critical thinking and constructive criticism. These skills ensure that project outcomes are underpinned by well- founded assumptions and informed by peer-reviewed research. 

How does it work?

Negotiate and select

The Academic’s hourly rate / remuneration is negotiated between the Academic and the Client, and will depend on his or her publication record, research experience, academic position, etc., and any other factors that the Academic sees as relevant.

Build a relationship

Work with the Academic via video-conference or face to face. You will be able to involve the Academic in specific tasks relevant to your focus areas and integrate the latest thinking and research into your outcomes.
