5 Uppsala University Innovation (UU Innovation)

Uppsala University is the engine in Uppsala’s innovation ecosystem, where researchers and students from all over the world gather to create solutions to global challenges for a brighter future.

With support from UU Innovation, new ideas and cutting-edge research have the best possible conditions to create real and lasting impact in society.

UU Innovation’s support is open to all students and researchers at Uppsala University. Our free support covers advice and training on early-stage business development, patents and other intellectual property rights, agreements, building a strong network and team, and early-stage funding.

The only thing you need to get started is an idea or a research result you think could create impact. Together, we’ll explore the potential to commercialise or in other ways put your research into practice for the benefit of society. You don’t need to apply for our support. You also don’t need any prior innovation and commercialisation experience - your ideas and knowledge combined with our expertise make the ideal recipe for realising the potential in what you bring to the table.

UU Innovation’s support is tailor-made for you so you can continue your research or studies while developing your idea.

We work closely with regional partners, such as UU Invest AB, UIC - ranked by UBI Global as the World Top 5 Public Business Incubator, and Drivhuset Uppsala that can help accelerate commercialisation and the development of new companies.

Welcome to start developing your idea together with UU Innovation!
