On this page you find information on the following topics:

Patenting for researchers

Based on the VSNU/NFU guidelines, as well as Dutch law and the University’s employment contract, the joint UG/UMCG Intellectual Property policy focuses on two main issues: Public recognition and reasonable financial compensation.

All research, license, and patent transfer agreements are assessed accordingly by the legal department, before being submitted to the UG/UMCG Boards for signing.

The IP & Business Development team implements the joint UG/UMCG IP policy in close collaboration with the legal department of the University (ABJZ), the Center for Development and Innovation (CDI) and the legal/contract support desk of the UMCG.

Business Generator

With their scientific knowledge, researchers are increasingly at the basis of innovations with a societal impact in the fields of health, digitalisation, circularity and the energy transition. Stichting Business Generator Groningen supports these researchers from the University of Groningen (RUG) and the UMCG by translating promising research results into innovations that are very relevant for society.
