Commercialising UCC technologies and ideas drives what we do at UCC Innovation

In support of our mission, we work to encourage the disclosure of new inventions from the university research community. The decision to obtain patents and to commercialise the university's intellectual property is made based on our assessment of the commercial opportunity.

Our commercialisation case managers will work closely with you to identify the best route to commercialisation. Once a route has been identified, we work with you to develop and implement a plan to commercialise the research. This may involve further technical development work, protecting patent rights and/or market analysis . The technology transfer process is a well defined stage gate process from research stage through to commercialisation across the university sector nationally and internationally (click here for UCC Innovation approach).

Don't know where to start?

Book a time for a starting chat

If you have questions or ideas that you want to discuss about commercialising your research, undertaking consultancy or starting a company and don't know where to start, then start here, with our Office Hours service.

We have set aside times in our weekly calendar for the online version of "dropping in for a quick chat" This allows you to schedule an appointment with UCC Innovation staff to start discussions on new opportunities, ideas and innovations from your research.  A MS Teams meeting will be automatically set up and we'll get connected.
