We also offer to provide you with advice and assistance concerning patents and innovation at later stages during your project.

We look forward to meeting you!

 

An Invitation to Invent

The Rector of RWTH Aachen University would like to invite you to invent and innovate: "Curiosity is one of the strongest driving forces of science. Frequently, out of scientific curiosity, inventions are being made that result in innovation. For this reason, we at RWTH Aachen support the patenting of inventions and their commercial exploitation."
