Technology transfer through licensing, spin-out or start-up company creation plays an increasingly important role in university knowledge exchange. It is especially important in maximising the impact of publicly or privately funded research to both society and the global economy.

We have a reputation as one of the leading Scottish University Technology Transfer Offices and work closely with our research staff to identify, protect and commercialise Heriot-Watt research, promote best practices in technology transfer and deliver successful entrepreneurial training seminars for staff and students.
