The University of Liverpool has jumped 34 places in a ranking that measures universities’ success at turning their academic achievements into thriving companies.
Published today, the Entrepreneurial Impact Ranking measures how effective universities are in terms of production of intellectual property, creation of spinout companies and successful exits.
The University has risen 34 places and is now ranked 31st. Queen’s University Belfast tops the ranking followed by Cambridge University.
The University’s IP Commercialisation Team is responsible for working with academics to bring University technologies to market. The team provides practical advice and support for filing patent applications to protect University inventions, alongside other means of protection, negotiating commercial licences, working with industry partners and setting up spin-out companies.
Emma Nolan heads up the IP Commercialisation Team. She said: “I am delighted to see that the University has made such a big rise in this ranking.
“My team has been working hard over the past few years, alongside our academic colleagues, to build activity around spinout companies. Increasing the numbers of high tech startups is essential to the innovation ecosystem within Liverpool City Region, and it’s great to see recognition for our work.”
