Developing knowledge transfer skills internationally

We support universities, research institutes and governments worldwide to develop the knowledge transfer skills of academic researchers, early-career and experienced professionals, and those in the innovation ecosystem.

Our reputation as one of the best knowledge transfer operations in the world has been built over 50 years of developing the technology transfer and commercialisation activity for the University of Cambridge. We draw on that vast experience of technology transfer, entrepreneurship, and innovation support, from both inside and outside the University of Cambridge, to design and deliver a mix of open programmes and bespoke course design focused on tailored learning and useful, practical outcomes.

Our training covers:

  • Understanding national and institution level commercialisation strategies
  • Principles of research commercialisation
  • Supporting, evaluating and developing early stage innovations and disclosures
  • Negotiating and structuring technology out-licensing agreements
  • Spin-outs, start-ups and seed funds
  • Managing intellectual property portfolios
  • Using consultancy to build relationships with industry
  • Assessing, protecting and commercialising software
  • The role of the technology transfer office in innovation ecosystems
