Kiel University provides a service for the contracting authority by using existing knowledge, e.g. analysing samples.

In this case, new intellectual property rights are normally not created, with the exception of the results of the analysis. Services must also be provided at fair market prices. The procedure is normally as follows:

  • the Technology Transfer department reviews the quote
  • Kiel University makes a quote to the contracting authority
  • the contract is awarded
  • the results are delivered
  • Kiel University sends an invoice.

The contracts (quote, contract award) must be checked and signed by both the University Board (administration) as well as the responsible scientist (e.g. head of the institute).
