Welcome to the pages of UCC innovation

Our aim is to capture the commercial potential that exist in the ideas, expertise and opportunities created by UCC research excellence. We are responsible for technology licensing, campus company establishment, UCCs patent portfolio management, the Gateway UCC incubation centre and Ignite, the Graduate Business Innovation Programme

UCC innovation is supported, in part, by funds from the Enterprise Ireland Technology Transfer Strenthening Initiative.  As part of this funding UCC is delighted to have a working collaboration with Cork Institute of Technology's Industrial Liaison Office,  UCC innovation for Teagasc,  Agriculture and Food Development Authority and with UCC innovation in the Institute of Technology Tralee to embed common technology transfer practises within the consortium of a international standard.

We are supported in this work by  Logo for Knowledge Transfer Ireland
