Protecting the creation of the mind
Each year, ESA develops a vast array of innovative, highly sophisticated technologies and applications to support its space programmes and make Europe’s space endeavours happen. Many of these developments result in intellectual property (IP) for top-notch technology. A lot of this IP owned by ESA also has significant commercial potential for non-space applications.
ESA’s patents portfolio, and market the Agency’s own IP to the non-space industry in order to make sure they are exploited to their full potential.
The TTPO supports ESA’s aim to encourage, protect and license innovations in order to fulfill the mission of cooperation among Member States in space research, technologies and their applications, as well as to support the worldwide competitiveness of European industry.
About ESA patents
IP for commercialisation
Intellectual Property (IP) refers to the protection of creations of the mind, which have both a moral and a commercial value.
IP law typically grants the author of an intellectual creation exclusive rights for exploiting and benefiting from their creation. However, these rights, also called monopoly right of exploitation, are limited in scope, duration and geographical extent.
