From research output to the marketplace
Commercialisation activities are an important part of the University’s enterprise activity, offering a valuable interface between our research expertise and its potential users. The Research and Enterprise Office provides a high level of support to Schools undertaking commercialisation activities, including strategic development alliances, license agreements and setting up spin-out companies.
Utilising our networks, market analysis and working within the University’s knowledge exchange policies, our focus is to help you maximise the benefits to you, and your research, from commercialisation activities.
The Research Funding & Development Team can support you, helping you to identify and exploit opportunities to commercialise your research outcomes. They can advise you on a range of issues including:
The Team will help with contract negotiations, authorisation from the University for official acceptance of contracts and, once your commercial activity is off the ground, brief colleagues in the Finance Office to facilitate project set-up.
