IPR and Patents

Science and what it can teach you are free. This is the way Article 17 of the Constitution intends it to be. A university must and should be allowed to exercise this freedom and protect this field of action by all means available at its disposal.

On one hand, Intellectual Property Rights (IPR) safeguard the rights to the research finding and on the other hand, they document the practical benefits of scientific research.

Scientific creativity and inventiveness are not a university end in itself, they have a high practical value. Patents are a benchmark for this.

Here are two examples of how inventions at the JKU can be visualized in order to show prospective users their potential applications. The videos were made as part of the inter-university cooperation "Wissenstransferzentrum West" and in close cooperation with the Linz University of Art & Design and Las Gafas Films:

MAYBE PALERMO or: What E100304 is All About

Cancer currently plagues humanity. As effective as chemotherapy can be, it usually damages both cancer cells and healthy cells resulting in a considerable burden for the patient. Scientists at the Institute of Polymer Chemistry have developed a "transport medium" that takes the cancer drug directly to the cancer cells - and without considerable damage to the healthy cells.

BATTERY BETTY

Scientists at the Institute for Experimental Physics, Department of Soft Matter Physics, have created stretchable batteries. This means that, for example, electronic devices could soon be incorporated into textiles along with a power supply.  The field of application is consumer electronics, but also medical technology and other fields. The sky's the limit!
