Programme 3 – Targeted Opportunity Evaluations
Example: A Radio Frequency group within a UK University had developed and patented new ‘smart antenna’ technology which significant improved hand-held devices. They asked Qi3 to identify and rank the potential application sectors in order of commercial attractiveness, and then study the shortlisted sectors to build a competitive landscape. The output was a clear recommendation from Qi3 to form a spin-out company, and a list of companies to pursue partnership arrangements with if a full spin-out was not possible.
