The support focuses on questions concerning intellectual property rights and the implementation of the University of Freiburg’s intellectual property (IP) strategy.

The Patent Office is the central office for registering inventions at the University of Freiburg. Finally, the team at the Entrepreneurial Office of the University of Freiburg advises all university members on questions concerning self-employment and founding a company.
