We discover and secure commercially interesting market research in the field of life sciences. We are the exclusive partner of leading public research universities and enable access to more than 700 technologies, research materials and tools in this area.

We advise public life-science research institutions in all aspects of intellectual property asset management. With our support, commercially attractive inventions, materials and know-how are promptly identified and given appropriate patent protection. We find suitable industrial partners, negotiate licensing and cooperation agreements, and accompany start-ups on the road to independence. Ideas thereby lead to new jobs and products, such as a novel anti-cancer drug or a procedure for identifying harmful bacteria in drinking water. The proceeds from commercialisation flow back to the research institutions. Ascenion is the exclusive partner of 13 life-science institutes in the Helmholtz and Leibniz Associations and of one Medical School, and coordinates technology transfer for the German National Genome Research Network. We currently market around 600 technologies, together with a varied range of research materials, e.g. antibodies, animal models and vectors.
