Making technology transfer make sense
If you’re an academic at UCL working on a novel and exciting idea that shows promise and potential, the options and opportunities facing you can seem complex and confusing.
You might, for example, wish to learn how to commercialise your research to generate money for your department, find out more about forming a spin out company or fully understand the value of protecting your intellectual property (IP).
Don’t worry, we’re ideally positioned to help and guide you at every step of your journey from innovation to impact.
