Professor Chris Tuck, Faculty Director of Impact and Knowledge Exchange, Faculty of Engineering:

"Our Innovation and Impact Manager Dr Jon Collett, works between the Faculty and the central Intellectual Property Commercialisation Office. During 2016/17 the following Technology Transfer successes were celebrated:

In July 2017, Build Test Solutions Ltd licensed the patented pulse test technology for testing building air-tightness, led by Dr Christopher Wood and Professor Mark Gillott.

Footfalls and Heartbeats (UK) Ltd are collaborating with the University under a unique licensing model, and are working with Professor Stephen Morgan to develop novel optical sensors for textiles. Professor Morgan has received a Royal Society fellowship for a secondment with the company to further progress the commercialisation of the technology.

Monica Healthcare Ltd, a spin-out based on Technology developed by Professor Barrie Hayes- Gill and Professor John Crowe, was acquired by GE healthcare. This represents a tremendous success for the Monica team. The GE acquisition will ensure that Monica Healthcare’s innovative products, based on technology developed by the University of Nottingham, can be distributed widely, benefitting thousands of expectant mothers across the world."
