Your research project has goals that you want to deliver.
These goals could range from high-level fundamentals such as better understanding important natural phenomenon, for instance underlying photosynthesis, cancer induction, group behaviours or climate change, to those related to more tangible outputs, such as developing cost-effective encapsulation for active-food ingredients or improved ways to process plastic electronic components, or ensuring effective and error-free data transmission.
Understanding and communicating the position of your research in its broad context and potential impact is the key first step on the commercialisation journey. This typically draws upon your experience and excellence in your academic environment and also draws upon what is happening in the commercial world.
Joining the dots across these spaces is crucial and leveraging the support of the Technology Transfer team is an important first step.
