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 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.
Implementation of a Raman spectral decomposition technique that allows effective identification of complex mixtures. The computationally and memory efficient software enables new functionality to be added to portable hand-held devices.
Antibiotics are often prescribed inappropriately leading to (1) patients remaining infected and failing to recover from bacterial infection, and (2) the spread of bacterial antibiotic resistance. Our laboratory prototype devices can provide accurate detection and quantification of bacterial suscepti...
The metathesis of alkenes with ethene, ethenolysis, is one of the most important and difficult of all metathesis reactions. We have developed processes that allow improved and efficient ethenolysis reactions to occur using cheap, readily available off-patent catalysts.
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.
Researchers at the University of Dundee have developed a robust and original method for interrogating the activity of single bromodomain proteins, which will assist in exploring their role in the epigenetics of health and disease.
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....
Researchers at the University of St Andrews have developed a synthetic process for the preparation of a class of enantiomerically pure chiral amines. This efficient and economical method gives rise to entities of a varied structural class, which can be used as building blocks in the synthesis of bio...
Heriot-Watt has developed a range of water based VAT dye formulations suitable for inkjet printing on cotton or poly-cotton textiles.
Developed within the EU Digitex project, these offer low viscosity, strong colours and good printhead stability. We are seeking licensees or collaborative develom...
The innovation provides a gas-induced method for phase-transforming organic solids, such as pharmaceutical crystals. The inventive method subjects the polymorphs of pharmaceutical agents to various pressures of gases (such as CO2, N2O, and CH4) to induce phase transform with ease.
