The Technology Transfer Office is available for all DESY groups and employees as contact for the following issues:

  • Information, consulting and training on all strategic and operative questions regarding the intellectual property of DESY, like property rights (patents, utility models, brands), non-disclosure agreements and transfer of rights - for example in cooperation agreements and contracts with external partners - as well as copyright law.

  • Exchange and disclosure of information on technologies and know-how to third parties and for internal purposes.

  • Consulting and support of DESY employees who consider to spin off with a technology developed at DESY. More information can soon be found under "DESY Start-up Office".

  • Consulting and support of employees, who made an invention:
    All DESY employees who assume that they have made an invention in the context of their work at DESY are welcome to contact TT at any time for a first check of the inventions potential and to discuss further opportunities and activities.

  • Contact point for all sponsoring and advertising projects with private third parties at DESY (e.g. presentations, in-house and industrial exhibitions, logos and adverts). TT examines which bodies have to be involved in order to exclude problems in areas such as corruption (accepting or granting undue advantages), tax and donation law and outside publicity (Corporate Design). A contract with the sponsors or advertising partners will be concluded when all details regarding the <a data-cke-saved-href="" href="" _blank"="">DESY-Sponsoringrichtlinie are resolved.
