Earlier this year, LCMB and Oxford Brookes University signed a research collaboration for research and knowledge exchange activities.
The team has now successfully secured a Management Knowledge Transfer Partnership with Innovate UK and BEIS. Under this two-year project, Oxford Brookes University Business School will work closely with the LCMB team to enhance, develop, and extend the services and value we can bring to our clients.
LCMB’s services help transform our clients’ buildings into highly productive workplaces that help organisations and their people to thrive. The portfolio of services provided by LCMB supports our clients to reduce the use of resources, operational costs and carbon footprint while enhancing their staff’s health, wellbeing, and performance.
Given the Government’s commitment to net zero by 2050, there is a need to reduce carbon emissions and energy consumption by improving hard and soft facilities management. The imperative to increase value has benefits beyond buildings and is critical to initiating a continual improvement cycle through better space utilisation and resource use.
The Management Knowledge Transfer Partnership (mKTP) will support LCMB to deliver higher value services for our clients as we help them shift to a post-Covid, low-carbon world.
The mKTP is led by Dr Karla Zimpel-Leal, Senior Lecturer in Innovation and Enterprise, and Professor Tim Vorley, Pro Vice-Chancellor and Dean, at Oxford Brookes Business School. Both supervisors are part of the Oxford Regions Innovation and Enterprise Lab at Oxford Brookes University.
Management Knowledge Transfer Partnerships (KTPs) are funded by Innovate UK and BEIS to help businesses improve their competitiveness and productivity through better knowledge, technology, and skills within the UK knowledge base.
