Tech Transfer Office

The Tech Transfer Office is tasked with ensuring the ideal framework for the university’s collaboration with outside parties.

Intellectual Property Rights

The Tech Transfer Office is responsible for protecting and handling the university´s IPR portfolio.

The Tech Transfer Office negotiates all types of agreements related to the University of Copenhagen’s intellectual property rights (IPR).


When researchers produce results that could have commercial interest it is disclosed to the Tech Transfer Office. The Tech Transfer Office identifies the research with potential, and helps to commercialise it for existing business or start-ups (spin-outs). 

Do you wish to disclose an invention – download the disclosure form from the Researcher Portal on KUnet.

The Technology Transfer Office manages UCPH’s Proof-of-Concept funding, which can be granted to commercially promising projects, where UCPH has assumed the right. Read more about Proof-of-Concept on the KUnet Researcher Portal.

Collaboration with Capital Region

Pr. 1 March the Tech Transfer Office handles all enquiries about inventions made by the Capital Region of Denmark's hospitals. This is part of a closer collaboration on technology transfer between the Capital Region and the University of Copenhagen

Please note that the Tech Transfer Office does not manage the negotiation and conclusion of the related partnership agreements for Capital Region’s hospitals, including negotiation of provisions concerning intellectual property rights generated under these partnerships. These activities are still managed directly by the Capital Region of Denmark.
