UMI³, the University’s innovation company, standing for inspire, invent, innovate. UMI³ has two operational divisions: its Innovation Centre (UMIC) with state-of-the-art incubator premises and a vibrant enterprise conferencing and networking centre, and its intellectual property commercialisation services (UMIP).
Our mission is very clear: bringing as much of the University’s ground-breaking inventions and software, as is relevant, into the commercial world. This we do principally by attracting entrepreneurs, investors and corporate venture partners to our campus and innovation centre and then, through engagement with our academic colleagues, licensing or spinning out companies.
This is tremendously important and enjoyable work. All of the brilliant ideas which are generated by the University’s researchers have the potential to save lives, improve health, increase efficiencies in industry and the environment, and otherwise enhance society and make positive contributions to our economy.
Our vision is clear too: to be recognised widely for the excellent quality and consistency of successful and distinctive approaches to our work.
