Technology Transfer

When researchers at Aalborg University (AAU) or researchers together with industry make an invention they are obliged to report it to the Patent and Commercialization Office of the university. The university in collaboration with industry will then lead the invention through a process which can include novelty examination, proof-of-concept, patent protection and commercialization activities - all depending on whether the university wants to keep the rights of the invention or not.

In order to foster inventions and support researchers, students and collaboration partners of The Department of Health Science and Technology in the process, we have joined forces with AAU Innovation & Research Support, Commercialization.
