Fusion IP works with a number of the UK's leading universities to develop some of the world's most advanced and exciting science. In fields as varied as clean energy, electronics, engineering and medicine, we turn world class research into valuable businesses through the creation of portfolio of companies.
Delivering for shareholders
We have exclusive access to an amazing depth and quality of research and we aim to turn that into real value for our shareholders. Our combination of short, medium and long term investments minimises risk and offers the potential for significant value growth for our shareholders.
As shareholders in Fusion IP, our partner universities are rewarded and incentivised to ensure that their R&D spend is focused on generating world class IP and the academics are rewarded with shareholdings in the subsequent portfolio companies.
In 2005, we signed an exclusive 10 year agreement with The University of Sheffield, one of the UK's leading Russell Group universities to commercialise all its university-owned medical IP.
In 2007 we signed a second exclusive 10 year agreement with Cardiff University, one of the UK’s leading Russell Group universities to commercialise all of their IP.
In July 2008 we signed a new expanded exclusive agreement with The University of Sheffield to commercialise all of their IP.
In April 2013 we signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) agreements with two new University's - The University of Nottingham, one of the UK's leading Russell Group Universities and Swansea University, one of Wales's leading research universities.
These partnerships allow everyone to play to their strengths – our partners focus on creation and innovation, and we take care of commercialisation. At the point of cross-over we are well integrated with each university’s existing technology transfer team, ensuring that progress is smooth and seamless.
