Technology Transfer

From research to final application, from an initial idea to its implementation: researchers at Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz (JGU) cooperate successfully with organizations and institutions of all sizes and from all sectors, regionally, nationally, and globally. Bilateral projects between organizations and individual university institutes as well as participation in joint projects with several partners from research and industry play an important role here.

The Research and Technology Transfer department at JGU provides active support during the course of these processes and acts as interface between science and business. It is thus the central point of contact between companies and the university. The tasks and responsibilities of an operating technology transfer include the management of cooperation negotiations between companies, associations, local authorities, academia, and science as well as an active participation in the design and negotiation of individual contracts.

With regard to the utilization of scientific results that can be legally protected, JGU works closely with IMG Innovations Management GmbH, which supports the university in the patenting and marketing of service inventions. In 2008 and 2009, JGU received 60 invention disclosures, of which 30 were unlimited claims and for which patent applications were filed. At the same time, revenues amounting to approx. EUR 800,000 were generated throughout the transfer or out-licensing of existing trade mark rights to commercial businesses.
