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*. They will support you in assessing the opportunities and potential pitfalls of your idea and advise you on the steps to be taken. Questions you can expect from our team are:

We're here to assist you at every stage of the process
