Bath Ventures launches

Bath Ventures is launched today. This new department brings together the Technology Transfer, Consultancy and Innovation Centre teams, formerly part of Research & Innovation Services (RIS), into a new group which will focus on commercialising the results of the University’s research.

Dr Malcolm Cross, Director of Bath Ventures, said: "The University of Bath has an excellent research portfolio and a strong track record in commercialising the IP that is derived from it. Over the last six years we’ve created five new spin-out companies and generated close to £2m income from royalties and consulting.

"My team is now ready to build on these successes and take the University’s performance in this area to a new level."

Bath Ventures will report to the Director of Finance, Diane Aderyn, and, in addition to the Technology Transfer, Consultancy and Innovation Centre functions, it will be responsible for managing the University’s Seed Fund and the relationship with its venture funding partner, the IP Group.
