Intellectual Property Evaluation and Commercialisation

We have processes for the management of Intellectual Property and provide services to support researchers, staff and students in the disclosure, evaluation and exploitation of IP.

IP disclosure

The first stage in successfully exploiting IPRs is early identification. If you create an IP you think may be profitable, you have a duty to declare its existence to us.

To do this you should use our standard IP Disclosure Form.

This ensures professional and timely management of disclosures.

To find out more or book a confidential appointment to discuss your potential IP please contact the Enterprise and Business Relations team at
