Our tradition of excellence consistently serves the needs of industry and commerce across the UK and internationally.

We value, and strongly encourage, the commercial development of research from our academics.

Industry links and innovation

Edinburgh was one of the first UK universities to develop commercial links with industry, government and the professions.

Our commercialisation office, Edinburgh Innovations, has - for more than 40 years - developed the promotion and commercialisation of the University’s research excellence.

Edinburgh Innovations can help you take your first step to market, whether it’s through collaborative research, licensing technology or providing consultancy services.
