We endeavour to act on moving the knowledge and ideas, including patent, license and know-how gained through our research to the potential users of that knowledge within a wide range of industrial disciplines.
By utilising a range of activities including the Engineering and Physical Science Research Councils’ (EPSRC) Follow-on Fund that supports ‘proof-of-concept’ type work and the University’s Knowledge Transfer Strategy (KTS), researchers are encouraged and rewarded for excellence in innovation and for developing their ideas further down the route to exploitation.
This approach places us in a much stronger position to secure further support from venture capital or seed funds from industries to carry out development and feasibility activities towards new Knowledge Transfer (KT) collaborative projects.
