Transforming innovative ideas into new products and services
New technologies, processes and knowledge regularly emerge from the University of Kent's impressive research portfolio, providing opportunities for collaboration and licensing of new technologies.
Our experienced team work with our world-leading academics to help turn innovative ideas and technologies into new products and services; offering advice and support for all aspects of Intellectual Property (IP) evaluation, protection, and utility (licensing, spin-out, start-up and assignment).
We also help public, private and third sector organisations to access and commercialise cutting-edge innovation and technology developed at Kent.
An opportunity to revolutionise both the defence and planetary science sectors.
This novel protein-based family of materials, named TSAM (Talin Shock Absorbing Materials), represents the first known example of a SynBio (or synthetic biology) material capable of absorbing supersonic projectile impacts.
Making protein-based healthcare therapeutics faster and more efficiently.
Working with FUJIFILM Diosynth Biotechnologies, the School of Biosciences developed a pioneering application for creating proteins which will improve yield, speed and efficiencies in the biotechnology industry to create proteins by using bacteria.
Intellectual property (IP) deals with the formulation, usage, and subsequent commercialisation of original, creative work. IP is pervasive in every business/industry and underpins the monetisation of technology and data; IP is generated on a daily basis and includes new inventions, research tools, materials, services, software, questionnaires, financial tools, algorithms, chemical & biological processes, manufacturing methods, restoration & preservation techniques, and teaching materials.
