Making Stellenbosch University Innovation Matter

Innovus is Stellenbosch University’s university-industry interaction platform for the commercialisation of SU’s assets. Innovus is responsible for the university’s commercial activities. This is not limited to the commercialisation of the University's innovation and intellectual property portfolio through patenting, licensing and the formation of spin-out companies, but Innovus is also mandated to manage SU’s fifth income stream i.e income from commercialisation activities through its SUNCOM division.
