Commercialising your research
How to commercialise the outcomes of your research, including protecting your intellectual property and disclosing your inventions to the University.
The Technology Transfer team in RIS can help you with commercialising your research outcomes through:
Protecting your Intellectual Property
Reviewing academic invention disclosures and identifying novel outputs. These could be protected through patenting, software, design or database rights, trademark and copyright.
Managing your patent
Working with academic staff and external partners to develop, review, file and manage the ongoing renewal of the University patent portfolio.
Commercialising your Intellectual Property
Undertaking market analysis, marketing of opportunities, identifying partners, developing licence deals and new company formation.
Accessing proof of concept funding, through commercialisation deals with academic staff. This is to develop new research and development projects for embedding licensed technologies within external partners.
Intellectual Property protection process
This process involves recording your inventions.
Complete the Invention Record Form for disclosing your invention to the University.
This will assess the potential for protecting your Intellectual property.
Contact the Technology Transfer team to review and submit your form.
On 21 May 2018 Phil Brown, Research Commercialisation Manager, provided a workshop on IP and Commercialisation as a route to Impact.
Intellectual Property (IP) and Commercialisation are increasingly becoming a requirement in the research landscape and an important route to impact. Phil outlined IP and the various pathways to commercialisation in this workshop.
