A successful collaboration outcome is best communicated by the customer.
Below are customer testamonials based on their interaction with the Commercialisation Office.
Trinity Biotech is a leading manufacturer of Diagnostic platforms and tests in Ireland. "We constantly seek new technologies globally which are game changing in our field. In 2012 we licensed a new in-vitro diagnostic technology from the Maynooth University which will be revolutionary in our market. I would actively encourage all individuals and organizations to tap into the research potential of Irish Universities and Institutes of Technology and to familiarize themselves with the new technologies coming that are available to companies across the country".
Philip Noone, Vice President Sales & Marketing, Trinity Biotech Plc.
Code On is a technology enabling company that licenses IP from a number of universities. "We approached Maynooth University to license the high quality research coming out of the Hamilton Institute and were impressed with Maynooth University 's Technology Licensing Office. Maynooth University 's licensing officers are experienced business professionals with a sophisticated understanding of and a focus on commercializing new technologies. As a result, licensing discussions moved quickly and smoothly with the right key issues identified and quickly resolved. We highly recommend working with Maynooth University on both research development and licensing".
Laila Partridge, Code On Networking Ltd
In business and research there is a tendency to over simplify and underestimate the complexities of commercialising intellectual property. In Neuromod's case "we found the service provided by the Technology Transfer Office in Maynooth University hugely valuable, providing us with strategic insights and advice to help navigate the system and avoid pit falls. The TTO is also a strategic partner that will help link into other State supports, e.g. from Enterprise Ireland. Therefore, I would strongly recommend that anyone seeking new commercialisation opportunities should engage with the relevant Tech Transfer Office immediately. You will find them an extremely supportive and valuable ally in the first step of your exciting journey"
