Dr Annette Bramley

Director, N8 Research Partnership

Since 2018 Annette has been the very driven and inspiring Director and ‘Chief Collaboration Officer’ of the N8 Research Partnership- the strongest university research alliance in the UK.

As one of the UK’s foremost experts in research culture she has become a regular, compelling and in demand speaker on the subject.

A graduate of Oxford University where she achieved a first class degree and D.Phil in Materials Science, her particular niche is  bringing people from different backgrounds to work together on research that has a tangible, genuine and long-lasting impact on the world. It’s fair to say N8’s successes in this arena are both as fascinating as they are many.

For over 20 years now she’s guided scientists and engineers of all disciplines at the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (part of UK Research and Innovation) with great skill, inclusivity, and creativity.

The linked in recommendations available here https://bit.ly/3lUKPK6 go some way to explaining how one unique input has helped make so many people and projects successful.

When not excelling in her profession Annette is also a gifted artist in the medium of embroidery and acrylic and again to the highest accolade. She holds the Certificate in Technical Hand Embroidery from the Royal School of Needlework with Distinction and has exhibited countrywide.

As if all that isn’t impressive enough – her current side hustle is studying for a Professional Diploma in Group Sound Therapy.
