A patent is a legal title by which inventors are granted the exclusive use of an invention for a limited period of time. The ownership of a patent allows the commercial and industrial exploitation of an invention, prohibiting third parties from reproducing it (production, use or sale) in the territory in which patent was granted.
The University supports and encourages the inventive activity of professors, researchers, technicians, PhD students and students who carry out research activities at the university, guaranteeing administrative, educational, technical and legal support during the patent life cycle.
The patent is the main instrument of Technology Transfer between the University and the territory as it allows to formalize the know-how by making it available to social, industrial and entrepreneurial fabric.
The University supports its academic community in Technology Transfer projects by managing the patent portfolio, offering dedicated training and identifying appropriate fundraising tools.
