Cranfield University

Our vision is for Cranfield’s innovative ideas and products to be recognised for their outstanding contribution to meet the needs of business, government and wider society. Our innovations are developed and exploited under a broad range of mechanisms including:

• Industry funding of exploitation activities
• Public / private funding such as InnovateUK and RCUK knowledge exchange projects
• Knowledge transfer and outlicensing of innovations to end users
• Enterprise creation through business start-ups and wider entrepreneurial activity

Our knowledge exploitation strategy aims to promote all these activities, to maximise value for Cranfield, and to increase Cranfield’s impact and influence in the “real world”.
