Our aim is to inspire a spirit of enterprise
across UCL: to ensure that the economic and societal benefits of our research
are fully realised.
To achieve this, UCL Enterprise brings together academics, the business community and other potential beneficiaries of our research in order to maximize its potential for commercialisation and ‘real world’ use. The goal is to secure our institution’s long-term place as a global leader in enterprise and innovation.
