BSRC Fleming has a dedicated Innovation and Enterprise Unit (IEU) which acts as a one stop shop for all aspects of the successful exploitation of inventions and technologies arising from Fleming research activities. Its mission is to guide and assist researchers and to work with external collaborators to ensure Fleming science is transferred to the wider community for best use, both socially and economically.
Established in 2005, the IEU has already:
Established patent portfolios around core Fleming technologies
Overseen the establishment of Flemings first spin-out company
Established streamlined procedures for the management of Fleming intellectual property
Concluded a number of important contracts with industry
The main activities of the Innovation and Enterprise Unit are:
Drafting, negotiating, and managing all agreements signed between the Center and companies or other research organizations. The contracts may be Material Transfer Agreements, Services Agreements or Research for Third Parties, Collaboration Agreements or Confidentiality Agreements.
Evaluating the patentability and commercial potential of the intellectual property generated by the Fleming researchers. This activity relies on a network of collaborators with expertise in intellectual property and business development.
Supporting Fleming’s efforts in establishing Spin-off companies, where appropriate.
Supporting Fleming researchers in setting up common development projects with industry.
Promoting Fleming’s intellectual property portfolios, technologies and expertise through IEU’s participation in biopartnering events and exhibitions.
