We have strong relations with industry partners and educational institutions across the world.

This helps us to think holistically when it comes to research. By combining skills, expertise and efforts we can collectively address local and global challenges through exploring and applying solutions to real life problems. We do this through facilitating Knowledge Transfer Partnerships (KTPs) and collaborative R&D projects and by taking new ideas and inventions to market.

Research and Innovation Services can help you develop and protect your ideas and inventions throughout this process, by advising on the most straight-forward and effective way to take them to market. This subsequently helps researchers to make substantial impact around the world.

New Ideas and Inventions;

We can help you identify, protect and exploit your ideas, inventions and other IP (intellectual property). Submitting an Invention Disclosure Form (IDF) is the first step in this process (linked). 

Work with Industry

We can support, encourage and facilitate interaction with industry in your area of research. . We also facilitate the Dundee Interdisciplinary and Innovation Forum (DIIF) and host a variety of industry events. Details on these can be found here.
