Building the Innovation Ecosystem
Successful technological innovation, at the macro and organisational level, relies on the presence of legal and policy frameworks to support technology transfer and enable commercialisation. With its team of skilled and experienced professional consultants, Isis Enterprise can assist governments and organisations in developing and then implementing innovation and intellectual property policies and procedures.
Depending on client need, Isis Enterprise provides support across the innovation ecosystem: for governments - national and regional; the research base; business and industry, including individual companies and business networks; and other parties including charities.
Isis Enterprise provides support and advice in the development of IP policy to actively encourage innovation. A robust regulatory framework around IP enables companies to plan for the future and provides assurance to investors that the final product should provide a secure return. This is particularly the case where regulation is introduced to mitigate the effects of market failure, such as in the renewable energy market in the UK.
National and regional partners
Isis works to develop and run innovation funding programmes, targeted at commercialising the most promising technologies. Our support for such funding schemes can range from providing simple advice on a fund’s strategy, structure and operation, through to management of the entire fund. Equally, with our extensive breadth of technical knowledge, Isis consultants provide technology and commercialisation ‘due diligence’, for individual candidates to receive innovation funds.
Companies & entrepreneurs
Isis staff are able to provide support that helps those businesses fully benefit from the innovation ecosystem around them. This can be through simple business advice, closer mentoring of specific businesses or individuals within those businesses, thoroughly embedding the company within local and national investment networks; and/or establishing specific one-to-one or one-to-many commercial partnerships.
