Protection of Intellectual property


To recognize, protect and defend intellectual property as an asset is the task of the patent professionals of KIT. They each supervise one department and are the contact persons for their assigned institutes. The patent team`s services include:

  • advising inventors,
  • the processing of invention disclosures,
  • application and enforcement of patents at home and abroad,
  • the defense of patents in the event of a third-party attack,
  • the strategic support of the institutes.



For legal reasons, we can only advise KIT employees and students working at a KIT institute on patent law issues. We are therefore unable to answer questions from third parties.
