Your research can change the world

How we work with you as a researcher

The entire process is free of charge.

Idea presentation
Do you have research results or a good idea that can help make a difference? Then we want to hear from you. You can either start by writing down your idea (by email or DOFI form), or you can contact us directly for an informal chat.
Idea assessment
After you have presented your idea, we start an evaluation process. Here we look at uniqueness, needs, market potential, competitive situation and commercial potential. If your idea meets these requirements, it moves on to the project phase.
The project phase
In this phase, we create a project plan and take the necessary steps to bring your idea to market. This may involve working with rights (patenting/trademarking), R&D activities, seeking funding, creating prototypes, identifying partners and developing a commercial strategy.
Commercialization phase
In this phase, your product or service is ready for launch in the market. This can be done either by licensing to existing businesses or by starting a new company that will be responsible for further production, marketing and sales.
