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, UCC's 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 Munster Technological University's Innovation & Enterprise Office in Cork and the Research Office in Tralee, Teagasc and the Agriculture and Food Development Authority 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
