- Case stories
When you wish to utilise research results, it’s important to understand how for instance research- and collaboration agreements can affect ownership – and usufruct of these results but also patents and other intellectual property issues.
Research results and ideas that arise can often be protected as intellectual property rights and careful management of IPRs increase the possibilities for successful utilisation. At the Innovation office we provide support on issues related to intellectual property rights but also support in matters relating to licensing or the transfer of assets to companies.
Licensing means that you make your proprietary research results, for instance a patent, available for other individuals or companies who then can user your invention based on pre-determined conditions.
Within our team, we have extensive knowledge and practical experience of patenting and access to a wide network of patent specialists. We also work closely with the legal function at Chalmers.
