The management of matters pertaining to intellectual property will be managed and coordinated by this division in accordance with the policies as stipulated in the UniKL Intellectual Property document.
Technology Transfer & Commercialisation
Much of our research is undertaken in collaboration with industries and profession, which ensures its relevance of application to the outside world. Research activities crosses all schools and departments and breaks traditional boundaries while maintaining an excellent reputation in being responsive to the needs of the business and the community. These pages provide a gateway to the research activities here at UniKL. Whether a potential research funder, partner, or staff, we hope you find them useful. The management of matters pertaining to intellectual property will be managed and coordinated by this division in accordance with the policies as stipulated in the UniKL Intellectual Property document. Responsibilities
The major responsibilities of this division are as listed below:

Research Development & Commercialisation Model
Research initiation can be based on a group or individual effort led by a Project Leader. Project Leaders play a very active role in facilitating research projects i.e. searching for research funds, setting up team members, placing intellectual rights, consultation and commercialisation. The Centre of Research and Innovation (CoRI) is responsible to support Project Leaders in carrying out research works effectively. In summary, to ensure the realization of this idea, project leaders are strongly encouraged to adopt the Research Model as depicted in the following diagram.
Links between the University and industries are substantially important for the collaboration and commercialisation of research and its products. The University requires support from the industry in the form of funds and technology while industries reap new innovations created by the University. The common interest between the University and industries is commercialisation of new and useful technologies. The University is aware of the stiff competition among institutions of higher learning (IHLs) in getting industrial support and taking up the research products. Therefore, a combined effort among UniKL's academic members is essential in completing the research cycle.
