Commercialise new technologies

We have an excellent track record in commercialising world-class research to maximise its economic, social and cultural impact.

Our Commercialisation Team nurtures early-stage projects in collaboration with development partners from the public and private sector.

We can access funds to accelerate the technology and develop the exit strategy for setting up a company or a licensing structure to launch new products, technologies and services.
