  • Documentation on industrial property: regulations, laws, directives, etc.
  • Processing of patent and software applications
  • Exploitation of results: technology transfer contracts, operating licence contracts and know-how contracts

If you wish to disseminate your results and you feel as though they are eligible for protection, we kindly encourage you to fill in the following “Invention Disclosure Form (IDF)” and send it to the OTRI as soon as possible and always before publishing or disseminating any related information in order to avoid losing the work’s novelty.

We also recommend that you read the “Protocol for the protection of research results”.
