University Technology - Intellectual Property and Licensing

University Technology Plug InIf you have important information to share it's obviously vital that you use as many effective on-line methods as possible to do so. It was clear from the start that the information University Technology were to provide required special attention. University Technology promote the research output from Scotland's Universities across a diverse range of sectors - from Life Sciences to Electronics.

The first step was to ensure that the multiple admin users of the site could easily add technology offers in a consistent and simple manner, title, summary description, images and keywords all asked for and entered in a straightforward manner. That achieved we then had to consider how best to share the information. A number of options were introduced such as automatically posting to Twitter as well as making sector specific RSS feeds available. Registered members can receive regular email alerts keeping them informed of sector specific additions to the site - ideal for businesses and researchers alike.

But we felt we needed to offer further options. Allowing website administrators to add the University Technology RSS feeds to their web sites was simple enough but we were keen to offer a stronger call to action and one that when implemented required little effort for the content hungry web master. In the end we opted to offer a Java script plug in that allows even non expert web masters to add UT content to their own website.

The plug-in can be quickly configured by visiting the University Technology Plug In page. Configuring the plug in requires minimum effort - choosing the number of posts, the sectors of interest and the length and style of the posts is all achieved with a few clicks. Then it's simply a case of copying the small script to the desired target page and ensuring Java script is enabled.

The results look great, spread information and are achieved quickly. You can see an example on the right of how it looks. It helps spread the UT Technology and Licensing opportunities and also helps with building important links to the UT site.
