WIPANO - Funding Program

WIPANO - Knowledge and technology transfer through patents and standards

a program of the Federal Ministry of Economics and Energy (BMWi)


In 2016, the CAU successfully applied for funding under the new WIPANO funding program.

WIPANO supports universities and non-university research institutions in the identification, safeguarding and marketing of research results. The entire process of a patent application is protected, from the examination of an idea, to the legal protection of the intellectual property right up to the economic exploitation of the invention as well as the official fees. The universities and research facilities are supported and advised by qualified external service providers. These are freely selectable. With the promotion both federations as well as individual applicants (universities) are financially supported.
