The Licence2Market award is in respect of a product or service that is active on the market or delivering customer benefit and value to the licensee. The product or service must be based on a licence to intellectual property rights (IPR) from the Irish publicly-funded research performing organisation (RPO).
Timing: The product or services must have reached the market in 2016. Recognising that in some sectors it takes time for products or services to come to the market, the execution of the underpinning licence may go back several years.
Awards presented to: the licensee company, the academic inventor/originator and the TTO/ILO.
