Commercialisation

We transform academic research into commercial success and we have an impressive track record in creating innovative spin out companies. Commercialisation of the University's intellectual property benefits the businesses, social enterprises and operations we work with by generating impact and economic growth.

There are a number of ways you could work with us:

  • We offer investment opportunities for individuals or companies interested in our emerging spin-out companies.
  • You could access our innovative technology via licenses and co-development of intellectual property.
  • There are opportunities for you to work with us to exploit intellectual property and to network with our spin-out companies

Our current company portfolio includes regional flagship companies:
