This year, more than 560,000 people have applied to study at British universities, including in excess of 100,000 from overseas.
Our higher education is particularly highly prized at postgraduate level and it’s also well funded too.
Every year, about £8billion is spent on university research, two thirds of which comes from the Government. Much of that research is world-class, but far too little evolves from theory into practice. This creates a serious problem.
Companies are constantly looking for clever ideas, academics are full of them, but there is a mismatch between the two and along the way, large amounts of money are put to little use.
Frontier IP aims to bridge the gap between academia and commerce.
Frontier IP Group plc (LON:FIPP) is an AIM listed UK based specialist asset management group whose focus and purpose is to provide consultancy services to assist universities and research organisations in the commercialisation of intellectual property arising from their research.
