Innovation and development
Wave power, new materials, cancer vaccines, robots, smart windows, machine translation, 3D optics, PET technology, and micromotors are a few examples of activities and products that have grown out of the University’s research, creating some one hundred new companies in the last ten years. UU Innovation is Uppsala University’s organization for supporting commercialization and collaboration with the business community.
Uppsala University is now part of three Knowledge and Innovation Communities selected by the EIT. Since 2011, Uppsala University has been part of the KIC InnoEnergy, and in December 2014 the consortia RawMatTERS and EIT Health, where Uppsala University is a member, were selected as KICs.
