Companies can 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.

The IUL Investment Policy reflects the following goals:

  • To create an entrepreneurial environment in the University that encourages and rewards the generation of new inventions and knowledge, including educational materials, by staff and students.
  • To facilitate the transfer of new commercially and socially important inventions and knowledge to society.
  • To maximise the University’s commercial impact.

The key criteria for assessment of the spin-in opportunity is alignment with the key research objectives of the university and where there is an opportunity for collaborative research and integration of the university expertise and resources. 

If you would like to discuss a spin-in opportunity please contact:
