UCL Innovation and Enterprise
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 Innovation and 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.
Offering innovation, expertise and partnership
Facilitating entrepreneurship, innovation and collaboration
Empowering students for business success
Innovation is at the heart of UCL’s ethos: as part of UCL2034 we have committed to build on our current activities to enhance creation of societal and economic value from our research and innovation. Since coming to UCL last year I have been greatly impressed by the many ideas our students and staff have and their enthusiasm in developing the application of those ideas outside the university to make a difference for the good. And we can be proud of our encouragement of enterprise amongst our staff and students, supporting 31 spin-out companies and almost 200 student start-up businesses in the last five years.
