We aim to build on our proven track record in developing our quality research into commercial opportunities and our success in technology transfer through incorporation of spin-out companies.
Our enterprise activity includes our support of Converge Challenge, jointly won in 2016 by Heriot-Watt spin-out Microsense Technologies, and our enterprise team aims to enhance and increase staff and student creation of new companies by:
- delivering seminars and bootcamps to staff and students that explain how to successfully create new companies
- encouraging staff and students to pursue enterprise initiatives and awards
- providing support to new and existing spin out companies so they can grow and become sustainable by providing mentoring and helping them access personnel, funding and networks
