Exploitation EPSRC Research: Industrial Collaboration Over 2,300 organisations collaborate on EPSRC projects 40% of all research is collaborative with industry with $1.1B Industrial Contributions Creating new businesses In the period 2003-2007, thirty one university spin outs were launched with an IPO value of 1.5 billion. Ten spin out companies were acquired for a total value of 1.9 billion in the same period. [Source UNICO] Getting a grip Its development was shrouded in secrecy, but now a new vehicle suspension
