Technology Transfer

Innovation, IP, Impact


The Technology Transfer Group exists to further develop your research outcomes, protect your Intellectual Property, and to help you transfer your knowledge or technology to the outside world.

Cardiff University actively supports innovation. It aims to create, apply, and exploit knowledge to disseminate and transfer outside of the academic environment.

Innovation can impact on society, both economically and socially, influencing health, quality of life and the environment. Such impacts are a now a key metric in the Research Excellence Framework.



Do you have an idea that may have commercial value?

You should contact a member of the Technology Transfer Group. We can help secure funding for developing and carrying out translational research. We can advise how to protect your Intellectual Property, facilitate Licensing Opportunities, and create Spin-Out Companies. We can provide external professional advice to nurture your concept, funding to protect your IP, and the business contacts to commercialise your idea.


Do you need information on Intellectual Property?

The Technology Transfer Group aims to promote and raise awareness of the importance of knowledge and technology transfer, and the commercialisation of research outputs. We are happy to talk with you on a one-to-one basis, or we can provide bespoke group seminars. Please contact us to find out more.
