Transfers and patents

The Department of Research Affairs and the Innovation Office (AFO) can answer any questions you have regarding patents. We provide information and advice on legal regulations and funding opportunities, as well as inventor consultation sessions.


Good scientific practice

On 7 January 2002 the University of Münster adopted the "Rules of Good Scientific Practice" on the basis of a Senate resolution. This code of ethics obligates researchers at the University to observe the fundamental principles of academic honesty and fairness.
