WIPANO-Förderung für Hochschulen
The German federal funding programme WIPANO (knowledge and technology transfer through patents and standards) promotes the development of innovations and their swift introduction into the market.
The University of Göttingen is a member of a network of 14 universities and scientific facilities and has taken over the management of the network. The term of the current funding ends on 31.12.2019.
WIPANO supports universities and non-university research facilities in the evaluation, identification, protection of property rights and marketing of research results in the popular funding programme Public Research - Promotion of Exploitation. The entire process of filing a patent application is supported, from the review of an idea to the legal protection of intellectual property to the commercial exploitation of the invention and the official fees.
