Ascenion‘s local staff start advising and supporting scientists prior to patent applications, for example by reviewing manuscripts and planned publications in order to identify commercially attractive  inventions at an early stage and patent them where appropriate.  Together with the team at Ascenion’s Munich headquarters, they then develop tailor-made proposals for patenting and marketing strategies, forge contacts with industry, and negotiate fair contracts.  In the event that a spin-off is launched, Ascenion helps the company founders become independent and puts them in contact with specialist investors in the life-science field.


The LIV organises its research data with the Universis-System, a research information system. Universis' modular system captures publications, patents, data from projects as well as grant applications. The LIV benefits from the system‘s statistical evaluations in addition to its systematic presentation of information for internal and external reporting.


Tutech Innovation GmbH (TUTECH) is a private company with a public mission to promote effective transfer and exploitation of knowledge, especially by sharing and using science and technology for wealth creation and the benefit of society.
