Big rise in college ‘spin-out’ companies – The Irish Times – Fri, Feb 12, 2010

Good news – and there will be more of this if investment in R&D is sustained.

GORDON SMITH

THE NUMBER of “spin-out companies” from Irish third-level colleges increased by 250 per cent in 2009, according to new figures from the Irish Universities Association (IUA).

The data shows 35 companies were created directly from campus research last year, compared to 10 in 2008. About half of these are in the information technology sector, and half are in the bioscience or food areas.
