Creating the UK's biggest technology transfer ecosystem
Midlands Innovation brings together the research, knowledge and capabilities of its eight partner universities, in what is the largest formal collaboration between technology transfer offices (TTOs) in the UK. The MICRA programme is the Commercialisation of Research Accelerator – we are building a spin-out and start-up ecosystem that will significantly increase the innovation productivity of the region, and will help to accelerate the speed at which the innovations developed by these world-class centres of research can reach markets and make an impact.
A single route to engage with world-class universities in the Midlands
The MICRA Gateway offers:
- Easy access to innovations, support services and investment opportunities
- State-of-the-art technology platforms, science parks and incubators
- Extensive network of collaborations: Energy Research Accelerator (ERA), High Performance Computing (HPC), ESRC Doctoral Training Partnership
The MICRA Gateway is provided by the Midlands Innovation group of universities in the West and East Midlands through the Midlands Innovation Commercialisation of Research Accelerator (MICRA) project funded by Research England.
