Commercialisation and Intellectual Property

Aston has a policy of actively creating, protecting, and commercialising its intellectual property. We currently manage some 50 patent families, and we're seeking licensees who can help bring these technologies to market.

Technologies are available for licensing in the fields of Biomedical Engineering, Chemical Engineering, Pharmaceuticals & Drug Delivery and Photonics, as well as various Other Engineering and Other Life & Health Science fields.

We also have a number of spin-out opportunities of interest to entrepreneurs and investors.

A short summary of the University policy on IP and Commercialisation is available here. The full policy documents for IP and Commercialisation are also available.
