Licensing and Commercialisation

Brunel’s Commercialisation Team has responsibility for the commercial exploitation of the technological IP and other outputs of the University’s research, transferring value-adding innovation and inventions into the external market. This process includes appropriate IP protection through patent filings; establishing proof of concept; engaging with market customers to validate and confirm value propositions; and producing working prototypes to demonstrate relevance for intended applications.

The Commercialisation Team is staffed by experienced professionals from business, and works closely with industrial partners to develop and add value thorough cutting edge technology. With access to seed capital, venture capital, business angel and loan finance, it has established both exclusive and non-exclusive licensing agreements with major companies, and has also established a number of successful spinout companies.
