UMIC ® UMIP ® UMI 3 2 Professor of electrical materials, Simon Rowland, from the School of Electrical and Electronic Engineering, presented his experiences of being involved in spin-out company, Arago Technology Ltd, and also of licensing his research group's technology, Microshocks, to industry. Clive Rowland, UMI 3 CEO, commented: "The work that we carry out with our academic colleagues is very exciting and rewarding. We have weathered the external financial shocks well, which is a testament to my colleagues' persistence and the scale and quality of the University's inventions and software, which gives us confidence for continued progress over the next ten years." Delegates were shown around an innovation gallery which highlighted a selection of University technologies which have been commercialised. Innovations displayed covered many market sectors including biomedical, environmental and energy fields and consisted of spin-out technologies, licensed technologies and social enterprises. Professor Luke Georghiou, Vice President for Research and Innovation, commented: 'As a University we have to ensure that the work we do has impact beyond academia, yielding economic social and cultural benefits. UMI 3 is a very important interface, it helps us get our IP out to key target groups, bringing health-improving, quality of life enhancing, environmentally efficient and sustainable technologies into the market place. It is great to be able to take stock of these achievements today as we move into the next decade of delivering innovation especially on the back of George Osborne's recent announcements about science investment in the region." We would like to thank the following companies for their participation in this event Stop press: See our new publication 'Nowhere Innovates Like Manchester' here For further UMI 3 metrics, please see our 10 Year Anniversary Stock Take Report
