IP & Business Development
The IP & Business Development team focusses on strengthening the societal impact of the research of the university and on stimulating entrepreneurship.
We facilitate researchers in the field of intellectual property.
Patents are often essential to enable further development of promising research of the university. We have a joint UG/UMCG patent policy and provide support in patent applications, commercialization of research of the university and business development. We offer advice and support in IP-licensing or IP-transfer and in the creation of start-up companies.
We provide support in public-private partnerships.
We are experienced in using regional, national or global scale funding opportunities as a basis for public private partnerships. We support the project and idea development phase, we help with consortium formation, searching for regional partners and engaging new relations. We coordinate and align research agendas with regional programs and regional innovation strategy. Our focus is on connecting with all conceivable partners in the Northern Netherlands, North West Germany (from our branch office in Papenburg UGNWG ) and the European North Sea countries.
We work in close collaboration with the Funding Team and the legal department ABJZ. The Faculty Funding Officers are active on the decentral level of the faculties.
