We also offer market research, patent and utility model valuation services within commercialization activities for inventions. We present your novel technology in tech-markets and licensing platforms.

BAU’s distinct approach to invention!

  • If you are a startup that has already established your company, we provide protection to your inventions and designs by paying the fees, with all rights fully owned by you.
  • We provide incentive payments for patent and utility model and even invention disclosures for BAU employees and students.
  • If you are going to become a company with your patent-protected solution developed at BAU, we transfer your rights to your company free of charge.
  • Before publishing or participating projects and competitions, you can get a free state of the art / novelty report from BAUTTO. Innovation and novelty lie hidden in patent documents, do not forget that.
  • We carry out licensing activities of TÜBİTAK 1702 licensing program, we develop business together and prepare the application with you and your licensee.
