Knowledge Centers

Knowledge centers play a pivotal role in the valorisation of research generated by universities or research institutes. Patents are instrumental in protecting the potential market value of that research. We offer our knowledge, network and experience to support this process.

Effective and efficient

Some of the most renowned knowledge centers are among our longstanding clients. We assist in setting up and maintaining an effective patent policy and identifying potentially valuable know-how. We draft patent applications, and also support in optimizing the process for disclosing, applying for and commercializing inventions from the institute. This ensures that applications are handled efficiently and new inventions can be disclosed properly and at the right moment.

Shared scientific background

With over 60 attorneys with a scientific or research background, we cover a very wide range of high-tech and scientific disciplines. Especially in knowledge intensive organisations this is a critical benefit, as you will want to work with peers in terms of quality and specialism. Your researchers and our attorneys speak the same language. We also have dedicated process experts that can guide knowledge centers in successfully managing and protecting the know-how.

Successfully building IP portfolios

We can deliver all the IP services that you need for building up sound IP portfolios and for managing them successfully, for instance via licensing.  When needed, we design client-specific working arrangements which optimize the interface between the process of filing and prosecuting patent applications and your staff and individual researchers.  We also provide you with up-to-date reports on the status of your portfolio. Furthermore, with our extensive network we can link scientists and entrepreneurs whenever that's opportune.
