The Technology Transfer Office at the Office for Research Services and Career Development promotes the transfer of University technologies to industry.

We can advise and help on and all options for technology commercialisation, whether by sale or licensing of materials or intellectual property, or by establishing a new company (start-up) based on the technology. Revenue generated is used for the University to invest in further research.
