Pass it on: we've got an award for our knowledge transfer

Posted by pt91 at Apr 19, 2011 05:00 PM |
The University of Leicester was one of ten winners chosen at the the Intellectual Property Office's highly-competitive 2011 Fast Forward Competition.

Launched this year by the IPO, the Fast Forward Competition aims to support innovative knowledge transfer practice that benefits the UK economy.

Our winning project ‘Leicester BioMed Collaboration - Driving Innovation from Bench to the Bedside’ is a collaboration between us and the University Hospitals of Leicester NHS Trust. By combining complementary intellectual property from both organisations in cardiovascular, respiratory and health sciences, the project seeks to overcome some of the difficulties associated with technology commercialisation in these areas.

It’s still ongoing, so if are you an academic or clinician working in cardiovascular, respiratory or health sciences within Leicester, contact Tas Gohir on or 0116 252 2757 to find out how you can participate in the project.
