Protecting Your Idea

Commercialisation is the successful exploitation of intellectual property to gain a financial return to both business and the University through spin-out company creation, joint ventures / co-development (spin-in company and collaborative research and development), licensing and sale of intellectual capital.

The Universities intellectual capital originates from the research, teaching and Knowledge Transfer activities of University staff and post-graduate research students and through collaborations with partner organisations e.g. companies, universities, public sector organisations, etc.
