Express Licensing – Software
What are we looking for?
Software is developed in all areas of the University – in research, administration and teaching and is inherently protected by copyright. We are looking for standalone software and software-as-a-service solutions that can be marketed to commercial organisations and for academic and clinical research.
UMIP can also assist with the commercialisation of apps but these will not be form part of the Express Licensing route.
