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
