We work closely with external companies in a number of ways:

  • Access our inventions – companies of all sizes and individual entrepreneurs can access an extensive portfolio of technologies and early stage ideas/concepts that are available for licencing and/or collaborative development.
  • Spin-in – we provide opportunities for companies to spin-in to the university and access our inventions, research, technologies and facilities to develop a commercial opportunity through a collaborative approach in return for an equity stake.
  • Portfolio companies – we encourage and support the commercial advancement of new inventions and ideas developed by our academic staff and students into fully commercial enterprises.
