Translating research findings for economic and societal benefit

The University helps fund and support the translation of the findings and ideas from research for sustainable economic development. 

Research Services, alongside the Sheffield Healthcare Gateway, provide conventional commercialisation support for 'direct' economic development. Your Faculty Knowledge Exchange teams provide support for 'indirect' economic development, through a variety of engagement types.

Could my research have commercial potential and where can I get support?

Research Services can progress opportunities via a range of pathways, including:

  • Development of an IP Strategy
  • Development of a Commercialisation plan
  • Funding (IPDaC fund)
  • Creation of a new spin-out company
  • Licensing or sale of IP
  • Using our IP to generate business partnerships
