Bayerische Patentallianz GmbH (BayPat)

With THWS's social participation in the patent licensing agency "Bayerische Patentallianz GmbH" (BayPat), there is a solid basis for professionally accompanying the process of evaluating, registering and exploiting inventions. Regarding the protection and commercialisation of intellectual property, and the delegation of said tasks to BayPat, THWS advocates a close relationship with the BayPat.

In close co-operation with the BayPat, THWS offers:

  • Individual consulting for inventors at THWS by the Campus for Applied Research (CAF)
  • Coverage of all costs for consulting, patenting and utilisation of job-related inventions
  • Individual, initial consulting for “free inventors” at THWS
  • Use of patents as base for founding a company
