Knowledge Transfer business management planning

Negotiation and project planning for commercialisation of IP owned by academic organisations around the world.

Most universities have patents waiting to be commercialised, but their Knowledge Transfer teams do not have the resources, time, or dedicated expertise to find the right partners, business managers and technical teams to develop their IP and attract vital R&D funding. We can provide this as a service and create project plans to take IP from materials science, through characterisation, to proof of concept and pre production prototypes and readiness for scaled up production.

Technology commercialisation

Developing nanotechnology for the clean energy and environmental business sectors. We cannot wave a magic wand to pass the competition overnight and overcome all the challenges of making nanotechnology profitable, but we can bring together world class people with the same mindset and ambitions to make improvements to current technology that make a business viable.

The challenges remain huge, but the drive to innovate whilst remaining open minded and flexible is a luxury that small businesses offer, working with the right partners is the way to create great leverage and value.

Small ans spin out companies tend to offer so much technical expertise within a narrow field, often lead by highly qualified scientists, but FE can bring vital business skills to compliment and help drive the company to the next level of funding and commercialisation capability.


Custom made industry updates

Creating valuable Intellectual Property (IP) is not just about having great scientists, knowing who is doing what in your industry is key to staying ahead and planning your next investment in Research and Development.

FE offers clients quarterly, or biannually updated reviews on industry, patent landscape and scientific literature, covering latest announcements, technical news, updates and public information monitoring.

Academics and small businesses can benefit from a patent landscape review, which can be offered on a one off, or periodically updated basis and this gives any company great assurance on where they compare to their competitors.
