Technology transfer

Commercialising University science

The Technology Transfer Office is responsible for the management and exploitation of Intellectual Property generated by the University of Salford’s research activities. See our current projects»

We aim to maximise the outcome of University research to benefit industry, University and the wider economy.

Our approach

The Technology Transfer Office actively encourages involvement from industry and aims to be a supportive partner in accessing the university’s intellectual property.

Our overriding priority is “getting the technology out there”.

All of our staff have significant commercial experience and understand the needs and demands of business.

Working together

We will:

  • act as a broker between the University and your organisation, and recognise the value industrial expertise brings to a project
  • help structure licensing deals and arrange the associated legal paperwork
  • manage technology transfer projects to completion to ensure they are effectively implemented in your business
  • work with you to find solutions to your technology needs. We are well connected with the university research base and will happily seek opportunities for your company on request.
