Durham University has welcomed an independent review of university spin-out companies.
The new report authored by Professor Irene Tracey and Dr Andrew Williamson aims to improve the creation and growth of university spin-out companies. The review makes 11 key recommendations to support the development of spin-out companies and build a world-leading innovation ecosystem.
As an active supporter of commercialisation, we are continuing to build support for entrepreneurship among our academic staff and students. Our technology transfer service supports the translation of intellectual property into business, economic and social activity through licensing, consultancy and spin-outs.
