Knowledge exchange and commercialisation policy

We have a responsibility to enable the optimal and successful application of the outcomes from the excellent research and capabilities that we fund, ensuring the widest benefit to society and the economy both within and beyond the UK.

Read the Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council (BBSRC) policy for knowledge exchange and commercialisation.

We are committed to ensuring that research outcomes are translated to deliver both direct and indirect benefits to individuals and organisations, including:

  • improving the effectiveness of public goods and services and delivery of public policy
  • creating commercial wealth
  • supporting economic competitiveness
  • enhancing people’s quality of life in the UK and overseas.
