Universities and Tech Transfer

We file patent applications on behalf of a number of UK universities, teaching hospitals and education and research institutions, as well as a long list of overseas universities.

We have negotiated spin-out agreements and been at the birth of many new and exciting ventures from the academic sector.

Many of our clients, large and small, tap into funding from any and every source available, some of which come and go with different governments and some of which have different hooks or obligations. A constant and growing source has been EU funding.
