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 and SpinOut Policy provide plenty of useful information. Both policies are available on the Legal Services website. You will need your University username and password to log in and access the documents.
We can manage the whole process
