Assessment and protection

The fruits of the University of Vigo’s R&D teams need to be assessed and or protected for market implementation. Such results belong to the University of Vigo since they were developed by its staff within a labour framework within the institution.

There therefore arises a need not only to protect such results but also to carry out market and patent studies in order to assess them at their full value, thereby reducing the distance between development of results and their application in the market.

For enquiries about assessment and R&D results protection offer at the University of Vigo, kindly contact:
