Your partner in research and development - STFC


Access to intellectual property

STFC’s Technology Transfer team manages a portfolio of IP that comes from carrying out our own fundamental research. Some of this IP is accessible to businesses through:

  • collaborating in growing spin-out companies
  • licensing our proprietary technology

Spin-outs emerging from publicly funded science and knowledge base, which includes our own technical experts and unique infrastructure, have access to pre-seed and seed funding through the UKI2S Fund.

We are experienced in working under Non-Disclosure Agreements (NDAs), and welcome a confidential conversation to understand your business goals and how we can support you in reaching them.
