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 take over contract negotiations for you.
