Patents are one of the most commonly known forms of intellectual property rights. They enable proprietary ideas and scientific innovations to be protected, as well as allowing them to be successfully marketed. In 2008, the University of Münster became one of the shareholders in the patents agency PROvendis. AFO acts as internal mediator for patent-related issues and acquires external funding to enhance the patents-related processes at WWU. Seminars intend to inform WWU’s students and scientists about the topic while they are also able to seek individual support by contacting our patent scout.
