Knowledge Transfer Office of University of Twente and Saxion
Developing an idea into a market-ready product often requires major investments. A patent helps you protect your invention and prohibit others from copying or selling your product. The patent advisers of the Knowledge Transfer Office can advise you on the possibilities of applying for patent protection and connect you to patent attorneys who can draw up a patent application for you. They can also advise you on which patent strategy to be followed.
Are you employed by the University of Twente (UT) or Saxion University of Applied Sciences? Then your employer owns the knowledge you have developed. In that case, we assess whether a patent application is necessary for the business case. Did you get a positive advice? Then the costs for the patent application are financed by the UT or Saxion. We therefore ensure that patents are applied for in close cooperation with the inventors.
