The PraxisUnico Spinouts UK Survey
This project is a listing of all spinouts from UK universities since 2000, with information about their origins, their activity, their growth, and their current status. The objective is to provide for the first time a continuous time series of data which will be updated regularly to give the most comprehensive and reliable source of information about this important sector.
The extensive database includes 1,500 spinout and start-up companies. This is the first survey to investigate this sector by taking a cumulative ‘bottom up’ approach, compiling data company by company and updating it regularly. The annual reports will analyse and comment on trends in the data, and highlight successful outcomes for spinout companies as possible exemplars or case studies for improving success rates overall.
There is also a free Quarterly Journal giving news, analysis, and comment on issues arising from the commercialisation of university research by way of company formation – if you would like to be included on the distribution list for this Journal, please email firstname.lastname@example.org The most recent Journal was published in December 2012, and the previous Journals can be downloaded from this website (see News archive for details).
