Innovation Management looks after development projects and technology transfer at the Center. It identifies promising projects in the early stages of the value added chain and promotes their further development as development projects in order to increase their added value. This includes projects in the area of drug discovery, which allow for a development of new and optimized drugs.
In recent years, the Center has established the scientific infrastructure required for this purpose, especially in the area of drug discovery.
Furthermore, the Innovation Management team ensures that all innovative know-how being produced at the Center is protected by patents and that a useable patent portfolio is created for successive licenses and spin-offs. This makes Helmholtz Zentrum München an attractive partner for industry.
