The TLB GmbH is the most experienced agency for invention and patent management in Germany. For more than a decade now, we have provided support for inventions created by university inventors from the initial idea up to the commercial product. With the proper patenting and utilization strategy, many of these inventions represent not only a great economic value but also play an important role in the reputation of universities and institutes.
