Commercialisation of research and invention disclosures

We support our researchers in commercialisation, handling of idea and invention disclosures and technology transfer. Researchers at the University of Helsinki, who want to turn their research results into commercial successes, can turn to the University’s Innovation unit Helsinki Innovation Services (HIS) for assistance.
