License UCL technologies

Why license technologies from UCLB?

As the commercialisation company for UCL, UCLB technologies reflect UCL’s world-class and diverse research base.

Our portfolio includes exciting innovations in a range of areas, from energy and engineering to healthcare and the environment.

We have particular strengths in biomedical sciences including cell and gene therapies, computer science and artificial intelligence (AI). But our licence opportunities cover everything from fine art to teaching aids.

UCLB has the commercial expertise, legal know-how and administrative support needed to broker licensing agreements. So your company can access and exploit unique technologies knowing that exclusivity and market advantage is preserved.

How do we work with you?

At UCLB, we care about impact. We want to get research and innovations out of the laboratory and into the market where they can make a real and positive difference to people’s lives.

We aim to bring revenue back to the university, but we know that sometimes great outcomes aren’t commercial. One of our biggest recent successes was the free, global dissemination of the designs for a breathing device to treat COVID-19 patients.

We work collaboratively with the organisations and businesses who can help to maximise the reach and impact of UCL’s research. We have a flexible approach, and we’re always innovating to make it easier for companies to do business with us.
