Submitting ideas

Rolls-Royce’s research and development is highly specialised, so it is unlikely those not in the industry will develop technology that can be used in Rolls-Royce products. Academic or professional endorsement would add credibility, especially for radical technologies such as novel propulsion solutions.

Rolls-Royce will consider knowledge, ideas, suggestions, concepts, inventions and technology generated externally. It is company policy that all such ideas and technology may only be submitted to Rolls-Royce via the form on this website under the terms and conditions below. This policy is in place to protect both the company and the person making the submission and to avoid misunderstandings. If you wish to submit any ideas or technology please satisfy yourself that you are adequately protected before doing so.

Rolls-Royce will contact you if we wish to discuss your submission. Please do not contact Rolls-Royce to find out the status of your submission. Rest assured, we will get back to you if we are interested in finding out more.
