With the implementation of the University Act 2002, public universities faced new challenges and opportunities for the exploitation of intellectual property (IP) rights. The mission of protecting IP is very young and builds on the fact that the rights to inventions resulting from government-sponsored research at universities are assigned to the universities. At the same time the university takes the responsibility and obligation to promote the transfer of the university’s research for commercialization. Economically exploitable IP must be sold in accordance with the EU state aid framework directive only in accordance with the market value.
