If you are a researcher with a ready to release technology that could be useful in tackling the current health crisis, such as modelling tools, software, datasets, or device designs, please contact us so we can assist you in disseminating your technologies securely through the COVID-19 RESEARCH secure licensing platform.
This platform is a non-commercial UCL-branded site that has been customised specifically by UCLB for the controlled dissemination of technologies related to the fight against COVID-19.
Step 1: Tell your Business Manager
If you have a technology that you believe may help in the fight against COVID-19, the first step is to get in touch with the business manager for your department or NHS trust.
Step 2: Download a COVID-19 Technology Disclosure Form
All researchers who have developed technology to fight COVID-19 that is now ready to release should fill out a confidential COVID-19 Technology Disclosure Form (see below) and submit it to their UCLB Business Manager. The COVID-19 Technology Disclosure Form asks for the names of all inventors, a brief description of the invention, funding sources, and the intended licensees (categories) of the technology.
You can download a COVID-19 Technology Disclosure Form using the link below.
Please note: any public disclosure of your invention will negatively impact the ability to obtain a patent. Please discuss this with your Business Manager. To support the fight against COVID-19, technology licences hosted on this platform will all be made available free of charge. Your Business Manager can advise of alternative commercial licensing strategies where appropriate.
