“Under our new name of Innovation Ulster Ltd, we’re continuing to manage Ulster’s market-leading consultancy business and direct the University’s investment in technology, as well as incubating its high-growth spin-out companies,” said Director of Innovation, Tim Brundle.
“Behind our new name is a long, successful heritage of innovation. Our companies are producing life-saving devices and therapeutics, sustainable materials for the aerospace industry and revolutionising search engines.
“We’re currently seeking entrepreneurs and investors looking for breakthrough ideas, technologies and business opportunities.”
