For knowledge institutes proactive, transparent, cost-effective and efficient decision making processes are crucial in the field of IP. We facilitate such processes.
One of the roles of knowledge-based institutions is to encourage commercial activity based on knowledge they generate. Often, this is established through startups or licensing technology and related patent and know-how rights to businesses. Patent rights may form a solid foundation on which a startup or a licensing program can be based. Patent awareness among researchers, the identification of relevant patentable inventions, and the drafting of high quality patent application are therefore key. Moreover, patent rights are expensive to obtain and maintain, and it is therefore most important that interested partners are identified and found before significant costs are incurred. This requires proactive, transparent, cost-effective and efficient decision making processes.

We provide a realistic assessment of the usefulness of patent protection, and possible alternatives. Our processes are clear and transparent, and include regular cost assessments.
