Innovation and entrepeneurship
Assistance and advice on innovation projects and commercialization of research results.
UiB is co-owner of VIS (formerly Bergen Teknologioverføring), which works with technology transfer and commercialization on behalf of a dozen research institutions in the Bergen region.
VIS can help scientists and academic staff develop and put into practice ideas and projects with public or commercial potential. They can, among other things, advise on patent regulations, financing opportunities and networks.
UiB has the rights to all ideas and projects with innovative potential from scientific staff. It is up to the research institution to decide whether or not to use this right. VIS takes this decision on behalf of the university.
The VIS guarantees that the first contact for new projects should be confidential and non-binding if you wish.
The University has compiled rules on the dissemination and management of research results in point 2.1.5 of the regulations.
