For inventors

Advancing inventions into application

Have you invented something that might be patentable and attractive to industry? We evaluate the feasibility and commercial viability of securing patent protection for your results. We then work with you to develop an appropriate patenting and commercialization strategy, make contact with potential partners from industry and negotiate the necessary agreements. You will be closely involved in the process, and we support you during your collaboration with industry and monitor contract compliance.

Your benefits 

  • You gain insights into relevant markets.
  • You build relations to industry.
  • You receive valuable feedback. Comparing notes with scientists from industry can provide significant impetus to your work. 
  • You contribute to the translation of your work into valuable applications. 
  • You participate in the commercial success of any resulting marketable product.
