One of the key routes to commercialisation for new technologies is licensing.
We will work closely with you to determine what the best route to market for your technology is. Often, this will be to license your technology to an industrial partner. We license technology to small, growing companies, as well as large, established businesses.
Some factors that we will consider when working with you to decide the best approach to commercialisation for your technology include:
The IP position - if it is narrow, licensing may be better.
Is new IP likely? If not, licensing may be better.
Is the technology core to your research area or future research? If not, it may be better to license the technology
Does a potential industry partner exist with the skills, facilities and expertise to take your technology forward? If so, licensing could be the correct approach.
