The Midlands Innovation Commercialisation of Research Accelerator programme is built upon the principals of sharing best practice to support our research projects to become bigger, better and faster to market than we could achieve as separate institutions. To achieve this, we have developed a training programme to equip our academics to become entrepreneurs, and a range of marketing activities to promote them to potential partners and investors.
The MICRA Gateway is a portal for businesses and investors to find world-leading research and investment opportunities from eight of the UK’s leading universities.
Many of our research projects turn into spin-out companies, while others offer technology which can be licensed to companies across the globe. To help many of these projects on their way, we have business support and start-up company incubator facilities at sites across the Midlands.
