Dr Kenny Lang

Relationship Manager

Medical and Life Sciences

I instigate new and develop existing opportunities for partnerships with private, public and third sector organisations based on the world-leading research conducted in the Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences, and the Schools of Biological Sciences, Chemistry and Pharmacy. I work closely with academics to promote key research capabilities through knowledge exchange, impact, enterprise and engagement.

I also line manage the UEA Enabling Innovation: Research to Application (EIRA) team of Knowledge Exchange (KE) Fellows and KE Manager working across the agri/bio-tech, artificial intelligence and digital creative sectors. The Eastern ARC Consortium (Universities of East Anglia, Essex and Kent) has recently been awarded £4.7 million for this initiative by UKRI to establish a network that will support business innovation in Norfolk, Suffolk, Essex and Kent.
