About business development and R&D projects
UU Holding can invest i pre-seed phase, meaning projects before they become companies, while bulding an investment case, or understanding whether to form a company based on existing IP and team, or trying to out-licens the technology to existing companies on the marketplace.

UU Holding represents Uppsala University in collaborative research projects. As one of the few countries in the world Sweden gives researchers at the Swedish universities ownership of patentable inventions. In collaborative reseach projects where all parties have to be represented by legal entities, participating researchers sign off their "professor's privilage" to UU Holding. All IP-related issues in these projects are negotiated with UU Holding. See R&D Projects.
