Even if your idea is still premature and very much ‘under construction’. The sooner you let us know, the better – in particular when protection of intellectual property is at stake. We can inform you about the do’s and don’ts with respect to making your research data and results public.
We have specialized business developers for each research field. From engineering, maths and life sciences to the arts, humanities and social sciences*.
