Commercialisation for Researchers

01 February 2024

Pursuing commercialisation could create significant public impact from UC Research while also leading to new opportunities for research funding, patents, industry partnerships, a share of revenue, a shareholding or role in a new company for UC Researchers. ​

Working with UC Researchers to Create Impact​

The commercialisation team works collaboratively with UC Academics and students and a wide ecosystem of investors, industry and advisors to generate impact from UC research.​

​We work with UC staff and students to​

  • Protect your right to publish and research ​
  • Protect your intellectual property​
  • Develop and implement commercialisation pathways​
  • Access early-stage commercialisation funding to accelerate projects​

​If you have an idea, or want to learn more about Commercialisation at UC, contact us.​

Disclose and Protect your Idea

If your research could solve a significant problem or have commercial value disclose your idea to the commercialisation team before publicly disclosing to ensure that your intellectual property can be protected.
