IP & Business Development
We facilitate researchers in the field of intellectual property.
Patents are often essential to enable further development of promising research of the University of Groningen. We have a joint UG/UMCG patent policy and provide support in patent applications, commercialization of research of the university (IP-licensing or IP-transfer) and offer advice in the creation of start-up companies.

The IP & Business Development team focuses on strengthening the societal impact of the research of the University of Groningen and on stimulating entrepreneurship.
We provide support in public-private partnerships.

We coordinate and align research agendas with national and regional programs and innovation strategies. 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.
Examples of public-private research projects can be found at research collaborations.
