House of Commons Science and Technology Committee has Published a Report on Managing Intellectual Property and Technology Transfer

The House of Commons Science and Technology Committee has published a report on managing intellectual property and technology transfer following their inquiry on the same subject.

Science and Technology Committee Chair, Stephen Metcalfe MP, said:

“When we began our inquiry, progress had stalled on improving the UK’s rate of ‘technology transfer’, and translating our world-class research into commercial success stories. It is very encouraging to see that our work already appears to have helped refocus the Government’s attention on this important matter. I welcome the emphasis on commercialising our first-class research in the Government’s Industrial Strategy Green Paper and the funding it has announced to incentivise universities to engage in technology transfer”.
