Technology Transfer and Expertise within the IP Collaboration Project

The IP Collaboration Project Universities individually and collectively have significant experience in the commercialisation of research and intellectual property. IPCoP provides an effective network and can assist in identifying areas of collaboration for researchers; delivering technology transfer and investment opportunities for investors; and assisting companies looking for novel innovations to improve their business.

The network of Technology Transfer Officers have built up a collaborative body of expertise and have characterised each institution's IP Portfolio, expertise and collaborative projects. This enables present and future opportunities to be immediately realised, not only specific collaborative requests from business, but also to be proactive in addressing current research priorities, thematic areas, strategic programmes and grand challenges with the expertise and know-how of the combined institutional research base.

In addition to posting opportunities on the Wales IP site, many Collaborative Institutions have been part of the development of Pipeline - a new searchable directory of technologies and other innovations produced by UK universities and research institutions. Pipeline brings these licensable developments directly onto the Technology Strategy Board's _connect open innovation platform, and enables new and exciting research outputs within easy reach of tens of thousands of business users.

The Expertise Wales Portal from the Welsh Government also provides a searchable guide to expertise, equipment and know-how housed within the Institutions (and others in Wales).
