The RVC works with industry in many ways. Together, we can develop ideas and solutions and improve performance through access to research expertise, technology and skills.

The College’s activities in Clinical Sciences are also underpinned by Europe’s largest group of specialist veterinarians offering clinical services through RVC’s three animal hospitals, two of which are in Hertfordshire (small animal and equine referral hospitals) and one in London (small animal including exotics).

The RVC’s partners can benefit from our wealth of expertise in commercialising research through:

  • Technology transfer
  • Licensing and entrepreneurship
  • Collaborative research and development with business partners
  • Contract research and consultancy


The RVC has generated innovative technological outputs in fields including stem cell technologies, aero engineering, vaccine development and wider applications for both human and animal health. RVC researchers have developed new technologies, innovations and products which we have protected and are available for licensing and commercial development. Please get in touch with us if you:

  • are interested in licensing a technology
  • would like to find out more about a particular technology or research output
  • are an investor interesting in exploring how you can connect
