The commercial adoption of university developed technology can provide businesses with cost effective solutions which may often be too expensive to create in house.
Scotland's universities are experienced in the commercialisation of research and technology and they are always looking for new industry partners to invest in or develop ideas further.
Here are the latest technologies seeking industrial collaboration:
- Real-time chemical component analysis for monitoring and optimising process performance
- Improved experience for children and adults in visual field testing
- One step prodrug trigger for targeted release of drugs
- Tactile Skin for Prosthetics, Robotics and Wearable Systems
To help simplify this technology transfer from academia to industry the universities have developed University Technology, an online portal offering a one stop shop for their technology innovations. There are over 150 opportunities from all of Scotland's universities across all industry sectors which reflect current research trends and market demands.
