The KTT Service supports researchers and companies wishing to collaborate and support entreprenurship. The aim is to transform research results into benefits for society.  

The KTT supports you in the drafting, negotiation and approval of research contracts.
You can find our templates here.

It is important to contact the KTT Service as soon as you begin to interact with the industry in order to enable the agreements to be concluded effectively and to maximize the chances of success of the future project.

The service benefits from the skills of a lawyer specialized in intellectual property and contract law. The KTT Service negotiates and collaborates with the university's legal department as required.
