Commenting on the release of the index, UCC VP for Research & Innovation, Professor Anita Maguire said, “I am delighted that the work of the UCC academic community and the technology transfer office to meet our strategic goal of being a premier European university for research, discover, innovation and commercialisation is succeeding. Our aim as a university, served by our technology transfer staff, is to impact positively on our community. Last year UCC transferred over 22 technologies to the commercial sector and we have launched 6 new companies in the last 6 months. We now have 21 active spinouts using UCC intellectual property or expertise to drive economic growth. This survey is a recognition of our commitment to undertaking world class research and looking to maximise the impact that research can have for the public good”.
