The Patenting and Licensing Office of the Medical Faculty Münster, Clinic Invent ensures the evaluation and protection of scientific results as well as their efficient commercialisation into marketable products in the interest of the scientists. Due to its specialization in the fields of medicine, biology, biotechnology and medical technology, Clinic Invent guarantees a high level of consulting and expertise. An important goal and thus also a basic prerequisite for a successful strategy is the systematic identification of market-relevant inventions from research and patient care. This is achieved by means of targeted advice and support from the scientists in the follow up to a patent application. Publication screens and unbureaucratic preliminary searches saves both expenses and time for all parties.
