Commercialisation of research

The Commercialisation Team can help academics and researchers with their enterprise activity by assessing and developing ideas arising from their research which have the potential for commercial use or societal or environmental benefit. We then develop and implement plans to bring these ideas to market through licensing or SpinOuts.

Most of the projects we support have a commercial focus, but we can also actively support projects whose returns are non-commercial - such as social enterprises.

Our Intellectual Property Commercialisation Policy provides plenty of useful information.

The Policy is available on the Legal Services website (find the Intellectual Property toggle in the A-Z listing). You will need your University username and password to log in and access the document.

We can manage the whole process

Meet the team

We hold regular Enterprise Clinics across campus as well as other enterprise-related events and initiatives. Visit the calendar to find out more – and to review Enterprise Funding Group deadlines and meetings.
