IP Management

For reliable commercial success

We find the inventions coming out of Hamburg’s universities and market them

Have you developed an innovative product or some new technology? Do you want to market it as successfully as possible and strengthen your long-term competitiveness? We can support you by protecting your product’s exclusivity.

Our IP management business unit supports inventors in research institutes, startup teams or companies who want to commercialise their innovations. Our team at Patent Agency Hamburg (PVA Hamburg) helps universities and extramural research institutes to identify, protect and market their research results.

Our support covers all aspects of protecting intellectual property and provides competent support and professional patent management. Whether you are interested in licensing or selling your rights, PVA Hamburg can commercialise your technology regionally and globally.

What we can do for you

Our services encompass initial consultations, evaluation of inventions according to technical and commercial criteria, prior art and novelty searches and IP strategy consultations, and preparation and coordination of the technology validation of projects.

We can also assist you with patent applications, identify and bring you together with suitable partners in industry, and run contract negotiations for you.

Interface between research and business

PVA Hamburg has been working for more than 15 years as a successful IP interface for established universities and research institutes. Our team’s clear goal is to validate technology emerging from universities and to help innovations achieve commercial success.

“I have been closely collaborating in the field of IP transfer with the TUTECH since many years. They have managed all our patent applications to my complete satisfaction. Their comprehensive guidance was very helpful in obtaining an EXIST grant for our first start-up. So you always get an all-inclusive package from TUTECH.”
