Certain types of university intellectual property can sometimes prove difficult to commercialise through traditional routes, usually because it is at an early stage of development, or because it presents enough uncertainty for companies to risk an investment.
University Technology’s Easy Access portal offers access to this type of intellectual property at no cost, to enable companies to evaluate it and put it to use quickly, with reduced risk.
Easy Access uses quick and simple licence agreements to fast-track the transfer of knowledge and expertise from Scotland’s universities to industry, so that these technologies may be developed for the benefit of the economy and society.
Through this initiative, our aim is to make it easier for Scottish universities and industry to work together and build strong, long-term relationships with industry partners.

This range of novel synthetic polymers control bacterial attachment, resulting in specific sequestration or repulsion of bacteria such as Salmonella and E. coli.
These fully synthetic biocompatible polymers support effective human endothelial cell growth and endothelialisation, whilst minimising platelet attachment. The polymer materials can be applied as a thin coating to intra‐vascular devices and have the potential to minimise problems associated with vas...
This new approach converts chemotherapy agents into prodrugs, significantly reducing systemic toxicity, and enabling local activation only at tumour sites where a specific catalyst, palladium, has been implanted.
Building Integrated Photovoltaic (BIPV) solar concentrator systems not only generate electricity, but also allow the transformation of ambient light and the use of cogenerated heat for various fundtions. Commercial advantages of BIPV include substantial reduction in amount of silcon used and reduced...
Researchers at the University of Dundee have designed and synthesised a novel, multifunctional protease inhibitor that has the potential to significantly enhance the performance of vaccines through proteolytic modulation.
This technology allows for effective separate suspended particles based on their stiffness, sorting by size and density. The separation uses dynamic acoustic fields enabling separation over a large distance, increasing the efficiency and throughput as compared to one operating on frequency shifting....
A long non-coding RNA target that regulates the proliferation of vascular smooth muscle cells, is present in the plasma of cardiovascular disease patients, and found at increased levels in unstable regions of atherosclerotic plaques. Therapeutic targeting of this molecule could inhibit vascular remo...
The new treatment is a combination of a peptide (ranalexin) with bacteria cell wall-digesting protein (lysostaphin), which specifically targets and kills Staphylococcus aureus, including MRSA.
A method of using multiple low Resolution images to restore multi-colour super resolution images that are far beyond the diffraction limit
Britain is facing a shortage of bricks for the construction industry due to rising demand for new homes. With the increasing financial and environmental cost of energy, low-energy alternatives to conventional construction materials are becoming increasingly imperative. This exciting new building mat...
