Intellectual Property (IP)

The Business Development Team will work with researchers throughout their research project and support them in engaging with the legal and IP support teams to ensure the protection and exploitation of their research. This may involve advising on collaboration, consultancy, analytical service agreements and material transfer or non-disclosure agreements ensuring that the key requirements relevant to the contract (Heads of Terms) are available.

The Business Development Team will support the preparation of commercialisation agreements relating to licensing or spinout of University IP, the negotiation of licensing deals and act as the principle point of contact with external organisations for contract follow-up. We will also provide preliminary advice on intellectual property and its protection.
