Putting ideas to work

Our mission is to make positive social and economic impact from world-changing innovations and new intellectual property created at The University of Manchester.

Global thinking

With the scale, quality and breadth of research taking place at the University’s three faculties of Biology, Medicine & Health, Science & Engineering and Humanities, we aim to have a truly global reach.

Licensing IP and building new businesses

Along with researchers and students from the University, our team of commercialisation specialists work with investors, industrialists, entrepreneurs, universities, charities, governments and other funding organisations. Together we take our innovative ideas to market where they can be used to create value and benefit society.
