The Utrecht Holdings are exclusively mandated with the responsibility of managing and commercialising the patent portfolios of their respective institutions.

In this way, the Utrecht Holdings act as Technology Transfer Office (TTO) for Utrecht University and UMC Utrecht, and offer professional help with legal issues, patents, life sciences and ICT business advice, as well as start-up support.

The Utrecht Holdings team is well equipped to help researchers with potentially patentable inventions or those who wish to start a business. The Holdings assist in protecting and commercialising intellectual property e.g. by licensing intellectual property rights or by starting up a new company. They can also assist in the exchange of confidential information and in the transfer of (biological) materials.
