If you are a doctoral student or researcher
As a researcher, you produce intangible assets in the form of, for example, inventions, designs, knowledge, scientific methods, software, work methods and measurement methods. We have gathered information on intangible assets and intellectual property rights that are especially important for you as a researcher or doctoral student.
Intellectual property right data – important information for your research
Patents, design protection and trademark protection are exclusive rights that are registered. The information on the exclusive rights is gathered in databases that are publicly available. Using this information, you can supplement and improve your external monitoring within your area of research.
