Following the ground breaking study into offering IP with minimal licensing restrictions, Bristol University has started offering IP from its research in computer science,  wireless technology, computer vision and semiconductor technology to companies under a new licensing scheme.

“As early adopters of the Easy Access IP model we have a real opportunity for companies to move our innovations into the marketplace more quickly and easily than before,” said Dr Neil Bradshaw, Director of Enterprise at the University of Bristol. “This is a significant advance for our Universities and one where we are leading the world.”

The ‘Easy Access IP’ project aims to increase engagement between universities and industry and speed up the transfer of academic knowledge and expertise into the hands of commercial partners who can then develop it to benefit the economy and society as a whole.
