Insight, in partnership with the universities’ Technology Transfer Offices (TTOs), has an impressive record of commercialisation its research; both licensing of intellectual property and nurturing spin-out companies. Twelve per cent of all licences across all domains and research institutes across Ireland come through Insight.
Depending on the field of expertise and the type of research you are interested in, the commercial potential of the research outputs will take different forms, from products, platform technologies and service provision to licensing of existing companies and the establishment of spin-out companies.
