About this event

In 1969 Edinburgh was one of the first universities in the UK to open a commercialisation office dedicated to managing its technology transfer activities. Since that time, the University has had great success at turning the business ideas of students and staff into reality. Between 2007 and 2012, 162 new companies and businesses were formed with active support from the University of Edinburgh.

The successes of companies such as Wolfson Microelectronics, VLSI Vision, Artemis Intelligent Power and Pelamis Wave Power are based on work originally carried out within the University of Edinburgh.

As well as giving us some background about Edinburgh Research and Innovation Ltd, Mr Waddell will bring us up to date with some recent exciting research work at, and innovative spin offs from the University of Edinburgh.


Mr Derek Waddell, Director of Research and Commercialisation, University of Edinburgh
