UCC STEM researchers talk about spinning out their projects from the lab to the market and how they are poised to bring local solutions to global issues across healthcare and sustainability.

At a time where solutions to global issues in the realms of healthcare and the environment are so urgently sought, it has never been so important to guide and support our researchers and nurture their discoveries, so that they can be taken from lab to market and applied as real-world solutions.

UCC's Independent Thinking podcast recently featured College of Science, Engineering and Food Science researchers who have been through the SPRINT Accelerator Programme, and who are all on their way to commercialisation and making real-world impact in the realms of health and sustainability.

Falling under the umbrella of UCC Innovation via Gateway UCC, the SPRINT Accelerator Programme is designed as a support to help researchers think commercially about their research output and start businesses that take the technology from the lab to the customer, where it can create real impact.

Jane Haynes speaks to four UCC researchers, including Dr. Eric Moore from the School of Chemistry, who are on the path to spinning out their projects from the lab to the market and poised to bring local solutions to global issues across healthcare and sustainability.
