Easy Access IP
A new way to share our intellectual property
We recently released a new portfolio of innovative technologies and opportunities available to license for free under Easy Access Intellectual Property (IP) – a new initiative to make it easier for you to obtain more of our IP and put it to use.
We recognise that it can sometimes be too early - or the market too uncertain - to invest in real-world applications of particular intellectual property. It’s this particular IP that we want you to license for free, enabling you to explore the possibilities with reduced risk.
We make it easy by:
Offering a range of IP to license for free in our Easy Access portfolio
Using quick, simple, 1-page agreements: no lengthy or costly negotiations
Easy Access IP is a first for the sector and King’s is one of three universities pioneering this new way to get our IP into your hands.

Why so easy?
King’s is an open-innovation university and we work collaboratively with a wide range of organisations in mutually beneficial partnerships. What’s most important to us as a university is to see our knowledge and expertise adopted for the benefit of our economy or society. Making it easy to access more of our IP is one way we can maximise the amount of King’s knowledge and expertise that is exploited for public benefit.
Easy Access IP provides a new, flexible way of working with us.
