Commercial – University of Reading

Show access keys


The Commercial Function supports knowledge exchange, commercialisation and commercial projects at the University. We work with internal and external partners to maximise the commercial potential of the University's assets. Our activities not only support the financial sustainability of the University, but also drives engagement with business and communities, which helps to grow the University's reputation and establish the University as a regional anchor institution.

Services for internal partners

We support University colleagues looking to develop knowledge exchange and commercial activities, and this ranges from supporting developing collaborative funding applications with industry (e.g. Knowledge Transfer Partnerships or other Innovate UK applications), through to management of Intellectual Property. We also work to proactively develop wider opportunities for collaboration, for example through the creation of regional networks and supporting the development of strategic partnerships.

Services for external partners

We provide an easy route into the University for anyone interested in working with us. This may range from accessing our research through to developing strategic partnerships. We're also responsible for the strategic development of the Thames Valley Science Park, and are leading developments with new and potential partners looking to join the community.
