Innovation Office

Technology Transfer is the identification, protection, management and utilisation of Intellectual Property created through research, for social and/or economic benefit. NMMU staff and students create intellectual property and, by managing and protecting it appropriately, the technology transfer function assists:

  • Researchers in translating this into useful and innovative products and services, thus creating an additional layer of impact from their world class research, and
  • Industry in accessing such intellectual property in order to further develop and utilise the intellectual property (commercially or otherwise)

Additional information for researchers can be found on the following pages:

More information for industry can be found on the Innovolve website.

Innovolve is the wholly-owned commercialisation company of the NMMU.
