About this site

The HELO (Higher Education London Outreach) project is a new initiative led by UCL in partnership with MegaNexus LTD. and supported by London Business School, among others.

The project is part funded by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) and designed by UCL and Meganexus, HELO helps to bridge the gap between small and medium-sized businesses (SME’s) and Higher Education Institutes by transferring expertise, research and knowledge possessed by UCL to London enterprises.

Many local businesses in London face difficulties in accessing the vast resources Universities have to offer. HELO will help to facilitate a collaboration between world-class research institutions and London’s SME’s. Through use of existing networks and support agencies, HELO hopes to help businesses and the communities they operate to prosper.

HELO can offer the following support:

  • Environmental and green projects
  • Technical support with cutting edge and innovative projects
  • Business development and marketing support
  • Training and staff development.

This site is mainly for business support advisers; businesses are advised to contact helo@ucl.ac.uk for more information.
