Support for academics, researchers and post grad students

We work to support the University of Manchester’s academics, researchers and post grad students to commercialise their innovations. This can be through targeted skills-building workshops, innovation-boosting programmes or by closely working with the academic team to ensure they make the best decisions for their situation.

The Innovation Factory has specially curated teams of industry, operational, intellectual property (IP), business development, financial, legal and marketing experts, ensuring that we can provide you with a tailored journey into commercialisation.
