With a global reputation for academic quality, we conduct ground-breaking research which can lead to new discoveries and technologies.

Working in partnership with your business, we create commercial opportunities to licence and develop new intellectual property (IP), together finding ways to apply new knowledge and innovations with maximum impact on your business.

We have a portfolio of technologies available for licence and we connect with business who are interested in licencing IP to develop new and existing products and processes and gain a competitive advantage.
