Get support with project management

What do UCLB’s project managers do?

The Project Management Team work closely with researchers, UCLB Business Managers and investment teams to develop innovations from idea to impact. Once your technology has a patent, we can help drive forward your project to a successful licence deal or spinout company.

Investors and funding bodies increasingly recognise the value of independent project management. Our team make sure your project runs smoothly, and offer flexible support with the planning, budgeting, delivery and reporting needed to maximise its potential.

UCLB’s project managers are:

  • PRINCE2 or Agile-qualified
  • Experienced in both science and business
  • Able to tap into established networks of suppliers and industry contacts.

We support projects of all types and sizes, from general research grant support through to overseeing entire project portfolios.

How do we work with you?

We follow a six-stage process to take your technology from concept to commercialisation.


Why collaborate with us?

We can help you:

  • Assess proof of concept and feasibility
  • Apply for research grants and funding
  • Identify critical development pathways
  • Set up and manage multi-site research partnerships
  • Manage risks.

What’s our track record?

We’ve supported successful projects in many areas, including:

  • Preclinical drug development and GLP/GMP manufacturing
  • Medical device development and in vitro diagnostics
  • Clinical trial support and research ethics
  • Biobanking and biosafety
  • Education and pedagogy.

Working with an experienced project manager leaves you free to concentrate on your research rather than administration.

“The guidance and support of the UCLB project management team has been absolutely instrumental in driving forward many of UCL Technology Fund’s investment projects. Their expert knowledge helps the academic teams we work with to keep on track and meet key milestones throughout their journeys towards commercial success.”
