Collaboration with business and society
Do you want your research to make a difference in society? Do you work in an organisation that wants to develop through research?
UU Innovation is Uppsala University’s organisation for collaboration with the business community regarding both research and direct commercialization of results and ideas.
UU Innovation can help with advice, contacts and financing regardless of whether you are an entrepreneur, researcher or student.
UU Innovation provides support to individual researchers and students with business ideas, for example by providing advice on patent protection and immaterial rights, by assisting with drafting of contracts and contract review, and with supporting researchers and students in their dealings with government agencies and companies.
UU Innovation also works to create strategic alliances between university and industry. Among other things, we do this by developing models and working methods for interdisciplinary research with industry.
The overall objective is to strengthen the university’s position in research and teaching through enhanced interaction with the surrounding society, especially industry. UU Innovation are also responsible for the University’s collaborative efforts aimed at creating economic growth in society.
