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.

A range of organopalladium catalysts suited to palladium catalysed carbonylation reactions in organic synthesis of esters from benzyl halides. Patent cover for the has lasped and these organometallic complexes are now offered for free use within the chemistry sector.
Highly synergistic antimicrobial agent for application in the food and drink sector and beyond.
Hospital-based management of long-term medical conditions is an increasing burden on health service providers due to increased demands for human and financial resources. Governmental directives for many conditions to be self-managed by patients in their local environment might ease this burden.
Researchers at the University of Edinburgh have developed a visual field testing device that uses a strategy that is more natural for the patient than current gold standard tests resulting in an improved patient experience.
This low-pH sensing fluorescent probe (PhagoGreen) enables imaging of phagosomal acidification in activated macrophages. The probe facilitates the study of the mechanisms underlying macrophage-mediated phagocytosis, as it can image phagocytic macrophages in vivo and in real time without impairing th...
Researchers at Heriot-Watt University (Edinburgh, Scotland) have developed an adhesive free method for writing conductive tracks on Dielectric, Ceramic or LCP film/ foils providing a strong bond and leaving no residue that could potentially de-gas or cause failure. Similar set up to the Laser Induce...
a MEMS package design providing a High Barrier to vapour (near hermetic)using existing wafer level photolith and LIGA processes common in MEMS, MOEMS and RF-MEMS design.
Using a novel conducting arrangement, 3D interconnects or through-cap connection is also possible reducing device footprint.
Heriot-Watt has demonstrated a lens & software system that images and tracks live cells, cell processes and small particles in real time in 3D.
Compatible with existing microscopes, this technology is available for license, development or purchase for use in microscopy applications such as fluor...
An effective method for delivery of small molecules to the colon has been developed by researchers at the University of Glasgow and Imperial College London which targets receptors in the region of the gut thought to be involved in appetite regulation and metabolic control.
Researchers at Heriot-Watt have developed a resorbable polymer insert which is capable of releasing over a controlled time (slow release)of antibacterial/ antibiotic drug preparations to prevent, for example, tooth decay or gum disease.
