The protection and exploitation of intellectual property

The Innovation at UCLan team provides an institution-wide service for the protection and exploitation of intellectual property (IP) via licensing, joint ventures and spin-out company formation.

The team offers a range of services to external organisations, including opportunities to exploit university owned IP, as well as providing investment towards the cost of collaborating with us. All of these opportunities are designed to help your business innovate and grow by tapping into the expertise at the University of Central Lancashire.

We do this through the following programs:


Idea investment voucher scheme

Providing up to £20,000 of investment to enable your organisation to collaborate with our experts as well as access to specialist infrastructure and equipment to turn your ideas into reality.


Intellegent property

The world class research that takes place at UCLan has led to a wide range of intellectual property available for licensing. To find available technologies please view our IP portfolio.
