The University welcomes the creation of new ventures based on University research and will assist the promoters of these projects along the way through its Technology Transfer Office (TTO). Specifically, the TTO will discuss with the promoters their business plan as well as a viable route to independence from University support while still maintaining scientific links.

To develop your business acumen, the TTO can also point you towards suitable courses and events offered externally as well as to external support structures.

Once a new start-up business has been established, the TTO will negotiate the terms and conditions under which University Intellectual Property (IP) can be used and commercialized by the new venture.

If you are considering creating a new venture or want to discuss your business idea, please don’t hesitate to contact us .
