Dr John McDonald was recently presented with the Annual Commercialisation Award. John has been active in the commercialisation space over the last few years and has successfully licensed technology to industry in addition to spinning out a company. John currently lectures in the Maynooth University Department of Computer Science.
The Commercialisation Award recognises excellence in the commercialisation of research at Maynooth University. We consider activity such as invention disclosures, licence deals, patents filed, spin-outs and linking with industry as key factors in bringing research to the market place.
