The worlds of academia and business have been brought together under a new scheme aimed at turning research and development into commercial products and services.
The Knowledgedock.com initiative is the brainchild of the Thames Gateway Technology Centre based at the University of East London.
It has been created to provide a platform for organisations to promote their products and services and to offer access to business advice, support, training and information.
Knowledge Dock manager Rob Moss said that the ultimate aim of the website is to branch out from its East End roots to become an international channel for technology transfer.
"We believe Knowledge Dock can lead the way in partnering research and development with commerce, with no geographical barriers," he explained.
"We are building the site and developing the tools to provide a platform for international technology transfer while at the same time providing a low cost communication network for businesses of any size," he added.
