Innovation Achievements


A comprehensive report overviewing innovation at UCT was published in 2010 - an electronic version can be downloaded from the panel on the right (Innovation at UCT 2010). The report showcases some of UCT's top inventors, the IP porfolio and patenting statistics as well as the activities of the Pre-Seed Fund which fosters innovation. The "Innovation in Action" section looks at the activities of spin-off companies that are based on IP developed at UCT. The report also highlights some education in entrepreneurship that is offered in a number of faculties across the university and the Graduate School of Business.


Shorter annual reports were published in 2011 and 2012, with the latter forming part of the UCT Research Report. These reports provide updates on new inventions that have been patented as well as information on spin-off companies that have been started.

The links of the left lead to pages summarising the chronology of UCT spin-off companies, profiles of top inventors and products based on UCT IP that have been commercialised.
