What we do?

INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY MANAGEMENT

Proper arrangement of the relationships of intellectual property in research is an important prerequisite for future exploitation and commercialization of the results, and increasingly the condition of research and development financiers.
Also, it is desirable to check the options as  earlier as possible, and already plan the form of intellectual property protection in project preparation in a way that will facilitate commercialization of the results.
We are thus helping researchers and constituents of the University to deal with intellectual property issues in research and development projects.
If you are entering a competitive project, preparing a collaboration with the industry or want to engage students and external collaborators on a commercial potential project, feel free to contact us!

INNOVATION OF COMMERCIALIZATION

We are assisting university researchers to evaluate the commercial value and market positioning of innovations and the plan to enter the market. We also help in the state of the art research and selection of methods of intellectual property protection that will support commercialization.
In agreement with the researchers and components of the University, we prepare marketing materials for the technologies developed at the University and contact potential partners.
Alternatively, we provide advisory assistance in establishing contacts and negotiating with industry, and assisting in the preparation of commercialization or joint technology development contracts.
