Northern Ireland Commercialisation Study

Commercialisation study of higher education in Northern Ireland led by CMI.

The study is intended to understand how the commercialisation activities of the Northern Ireland knowledge base – its universities, research institutes and further education institutions – can better contribute towards growth and prosperity in the region’s economy. The study examined the current position of the ecosystem in Northern Ireland, and the contribution of higher education to its performance, including an assessment of Queens University Belfast, University of Ulster, AFBI and HSC institutional strategies for commercialisation. Research also examined comparative models, and opportunities for maximising Northern Ireland’s future commercialisation performance.
