Commercialisation describes the process for turning ideas and research discoveries into practical solutions that can be used by the public. It starts with protecting your idea. Then you share it through licensing programmes, joint-ventures or other collaborative agreements. Sometimes, you may decide to create a spin-out company around your innovation. At UWI, we support you throughout the process with resources drawn from the entire Research, Innovation and Entrepreneurship (RIE) ecosystem.
