The establishment of the University Business Linkage (UBL) Cell is a necessary step in the implementation of the UGC Circular 10/2016 at the University of Colombo with the support from the Accelerating Higher Education Expansion and Development (AHEAD) Project. In effect, the UBL Cell functions as the Technology Transfer Office of the University of Colombo. The UBL Cell of the University of Colombo facilitates the protection and management of University creation and innovation, commercializes the output of publicly funded research and development and technology transfer from the university to the industry. In so doing, the UBL Cell contributes to advance the University’s mission of education, research, and community outreach, ensuring social impact.
