The JRES Enterprise and Innovation team provides professional and experienced support on all intellectual property-related matters and commercial research endeavours at St George’s, University of London and St George’s University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, both to our academic and clinical researchers and to interested external parties.
Intellectual property services
The team works closely together with our academic and clinical researchers to find and assess new intellectual property (IP) and to lead on the technology transfer process. We also offer guidance and support on IP-related matters arising during the normal day-to-day business, such as confidentiality agreements (CDAs), material transfer agreements (MTAs), IP statements in grant applications and research collaborations. This service is especially important if you are applying for a translational grant or you are collaborating with a commercial partner on a research project.
Support for impact statements and pathways to impact
Impact statements and pathways to impact have become integral parts of the majority of funding applications. Therein, funding bodies ask about the precise description of research goals, the identification of the target groups in society and the explicit demonstration of pathways on how the research outcomes will be disseminated. The JRES Enterprise and Innovation team provides guidance, advice and practical support on how to write and tailor project-specific impact statements and pathways to impact. To ensure best possible service please contact us as early as possible.
The department consists of the Head of Enterprise and Innovation, two Enterprise and Innovation Managers, who look after our four research institutes, as well as the Trust, and the Enterprise and Intellectual Property Administrator, who supports the team and administers our portfolio.
