Free intellectual property check-up service

Since 2018, on the initiative of the MISE-UIBM, a completely free service has been available to italian companies for the diagnosis, identification, protection and valorisation of intellectual property.
Interested companies can request an appointment directly from the staff of the University of L'Aquila's Technology Transfer Office.
Once the appointment is set, the company will benefit from a personal visit from the ProMISE-Univaq team project, lasting a maximum of one hour, for a discussion on the issues of knowledge protection, management and valorisation of intellectual property rights.
