Patent management

A frequent question asked by our customers is: Can I use inventions that have been developed within a bilateral project?
We have a clear answer to this: Yes!
Through the established patent management, based on a cooperation agreement with RWTH Aachen University, the acquisition of the rights to the invention is regulated. Thus, nothing stands in the way of a patent application by the customer. We accompany you and support you with our experience and our network. Contact Markus Beckmann
