Did you know that more than 95% of technologies developed in universities never make it to market?

When the commercial relevance of technologies isn't immediately obvious these publicly or philanthropy-funded research are too often left collecting dust on the shelf.

The RSC has teamed up with an Oxford University spin-out to sponsor six challenges on Marblar - a radical new online platform for finding applications for unused scientific discoveries.

Marblar aims to remove this bottleneck by crowdsourcing ideas for real-world applications from the global science and technology community, with the ultimate goal to create new products and new companies that will drive job creation around these innovative discoveries.
