Responsible sharing

The University is committed to creating a more open research environment.

At the same time it is important to ensure that you are aware of any legal, ethical or commercial factors when considering how much of your research workflow you can make openly available. There are are many places to go for advice:

Export Control

  • responsible metrics

In order to safeguard ourselves and the work we do, and to mitigate any threats to national security, we must comply with Government legislation and its rules governing the transfer of certain items from the UK. The Export Controls Compliance team will support you in determining whether an application for a licence is required for your research.

University of Manchester Innovation Factory

  • responsible metrics

The intellectual property created through your research may have the potential to be commercialised. The Innovation Factory works with academic and student inventors to identify research that has the potential to create commercial value.
