We can help you achieve impact, whether you are a PhD student or a Professor, a philosopher or a biologist, a department or a research group.

E-lucid is a platform for licensing IP online, quickly and easily. It accommodates open source, commercial, academic and dual licensing strategies and can be used to licence anything from code through to biological materials, from education materials through to publications.

Importantly, because of the way E-lucid works, it allows you to track who is licensing your technologies and allows you to engage with them prior, during or after the transaction. It also provides solid evidence via reports and on-site analytics.

E-lucid allows you to build a profile for your technology, with a dedicated page that can accommodate text, image, video, academic references, digital files, customised support and more.

How it works

List your products

Add, edit and craft your portfolio. Add video, text, image, academic references, supporting files and more. Use it as a showcase for your technologies and media.

A dual licensing strategy

Encourage entrepreneurial activity by offering a place where academic and open source licensing can sit side-by-side.

Loop in your academics

Each product can be adapted to offer academics a veto on orders or simply just inform them a transaction is in progress.

Automated processes

Even complex sign-off procedures are automated, so no project management is required. All stakeholders will be emailed (and even chased) by the platform, leaving you to get on with you day job.

Track impact

Even if a technology is being licensed for free, it is important to understand who is using it and have opportunities to follow up, or place conditions on its use, so the impact can be properly measured. Engagement and transaction data can be generated via E-lucid.

Take payments online

Take payments online, securely and efficiently – saving time for both your finance department and your customers. Offline payment options are also available.
