Services and Qualifications

Research has the potential to lead to innovative ideas or products that have commercial value. Once a promising idea or product has been identified through research, there are several steps that can be taken to further develop it and potentially bring it to market.


Transferscouts of the faculty are the first point of contact for researchers who have questions concerning the protection of research results of any kind, the practical steps involved in granting use to third parties, and their commercial exploitation. Ensuring the freedom of scientific research at the University of Cologne, we help safeguard the universities' legal claims to intellectual property generated via research, and contribute to the transfer of research results for the benefit of society.

We  support you along the entire process, from initial idea development to final solution implementation as your sparring partner.
