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 research team at the University of Dundee have developed multiple novel nanocomposite coating strategies for medical devices, to effectively overcome the issues of bacterial adhesion and colonisation, thrombus, and prion adhesion.
A Novel Strategy for Assisted Reproductive Technology (ART) based on the direct relationship between human fertility and sperm motility,the University of Dundee has successfully identified FDA-approved compounds with robust and effective stimulation on patient sperm motility in vitro.
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.
Based on their importance in health and disease, the proteases of the endo-lysosomal pathway - particularly the cathepsins - have frequently been proposed as therapeutic targets. Effective pharmaceutical exploitation of the pathway has been prevented by the issue of redundancy - novel methods to ove...
Researchers at the University of Dundee have developed a system for treating caries (tooth decay) in infants and children.
Kinematics is used to analyse physical motion, by measuring the trajectories of body points and their speed of movement, to help with rehabilitation and coaching. Current kinematic systems are expensive and non-portable, meaning they cannot be taken to patients who are unable to travel. They also re...
Researchers at the University of Dundee have developed a novel, ultrasonic actuated needle with the potential to improve the efficacy and efficiency of all needle-assisted percutaneous procedures.
This new bioinformatic method can be used to improve protein production yields from in vitro expression systems or in recombinant viral vaccines to increase antigen levels and thus improve immunogenicity.
A method of using multiple low Resolution images to restore multi-colour super resolution images that are far beyond the diffraction limit (
Building on previous working in adaptive optics and 3D imaging,Heriot-Watt has developed a novel approach using grisms allowing colour correction in multi-plane microscopy.
