about licenses

Inventor's Bonus

 PAL-Policy (PDF, in German only)


One possible way of intellectual property rights management is the granting of licenses to companies or spin-offs of the KIT.

Our License Managers are advising the Institutes of the KIT in contract design and are leading the contract negotiations with the industry.

The economic exploitation of research results enables the KIT the opportunity to additionally promote excellent research at the KIT and to give incentives in innovation.

The industry acquires usage rights to use research results in terms of:

  •      property rights
  •      copyrights
  •      know-how of the KIT

through individual license agreements with industry-specific licensing models to hedge their market-driven development. With that, the companies get a competitive advantage over the market competitors or the ability to enter new markets. At the KIT trained license managers negotiate these license agreements with the industry or advise institutes and other departments in the contract design for research cooperations and contract research.
