About us

MBM ScienceBridge GmbH evaluates, protects and commercializes inventions of higher education institutions and research facilities. It was founded as a private company and wholly owned subsidiary of the University of Göttingen Public Law Foundation in 2004.

We see our mission in the motivation of scientists to also look at their own research results from the perspective of an economically relevant invention and to report such to the employer as an employee invention.

In the case of promising inventions, we coordinate the application for an intellectual property right with external patent lawyers who are specialised in the relevant field

We subsequently present such inventions worldwide to companies in order to identify partners who are interested in developing the invention into a product and placing the product onto the market

What are the costs of patenting

The patent costs in the first 3-5 years including the costs for a patent attorney are approximately:

 

                      German utility patent
                      (“Gebrauchsmuster”)

                      German patent 4.000 - 5.000
                      European patent 12.000 -15.000
                      PCT-US-Patent 10.000 12.000*
                      All major countries

                                                                                                   * need a patent attorney
 
If your employer claimed your service invention he will carry the costs for patenting your invention.
