Technology transfer consulting, training and advice company Isis Enterprise, a wholly-owned subsidary from Isis Innovation – the technology transfer unit for Oxford University – has received the 2015 Queens Award for Enterprise.

Isis Innovation won the award for International Trade for its work with universities, corporations, investors and governments. It helps them develop technologies and products from research developed at universities.

Tom Hockaday, managing director of Isis Innovations, said: "We are extremely proud that the worldwide impact of our expertise and consulting efforts has been recognised by this Queens Award. We have seen a real need for programmes which assist high growth countries and institutions with quality research to find the best path to market."

The Queens Award for Enterprise is one of the UK's highest accolades for business success.

Hockaday, explaining what Isis Innovations does, went on to say: "For example, at the University of Malta we developed an entrepreneurship Master's course for founders of technology ventures. It has led to the creation of new businesses and the course is now being taught by local staff. And in Malaysia we are working with a group of LED lighting companies to boost their international growth and product development."
