Patent and Licence Service

Patent and Licence Service

Together with the inventors, idea-oriented procedures for applying for and utilising industrial property rights are worked through according to the following steps:

  • researching the state of the art,
  • evaluating the ideas in comparison with the state of the art,
  • defining the application strategy taking into account the publication interests of the researcher,
  • preparing, submitting and monitoring IPR applications, where necessary in collaboration with external patent lawyers,
  • locating of potential licensees and negotiation for the purposes of concluding contracts (licensing, sale, company start-up)

Services for inventors

Employees of OVGU can apply for intellectual property rights for ideas developed through their own academic work and open them up for exploitation. We will help you with all questions regarding commercial property rights, starting with the generation of ideas and converting them into an invention disclosure, through to applying for IPR and the implementation and exploitation of your inventions. Moreover, we will help you access the current statutory regulations regarding funding possibilities for those intending to start a company, and carry out inventor consultations.

Extensive research on the state of the art can be made available to you by the Patent Information Centre (PIZ) at Otto von Guericke University Magdeburg.

To increase the rate of exploitation of inventions we use the range of services provided by the ESA Patent Exploitation Agency for Saxony-Anhalt (ESA Patentverwertungsagentur Sachsen-Anhalt GmbH)
