Kyiv National Economic University named after Vadym Hetman

Department of Intellectual Property and Technology Transfer

General Information

Our University has a considerable intellectual potential and prospects in the field of scientific research and patents and licensing activities. We believe that the competitiveness of the University in the current situation depends on many factors, including the selected strategy of the intellectual property management, which combines efforts and incorporates interests of various units, teachers, post-graduate students and students.

The main product of our University is the intellectual product created by its teachers and researchers, which contains the following objects of copyright results of teaching and research activities, lectures, textbooks, research results, software products, databases, as well as objects of industrial property inventions, utility models, industrial designs and trademarks. The intellectual property is a form of property, which requires proper legal protection. The legal protection ensures the assignment of the intellectual property rights to specific results of intellectual and creative activities to the University. This is the necessary condition for the introduction of such objects into the commercial circulation.


The Intellectual Property Centre was established in accordance with Order of the Rector of Vadym Hetman Kyiv National Economic University No. 185 of 16 May 2010 in accordance with Resolution of the Academic Council of the University of 24 December 2009.

  • the development and the exercise of the universal patenting and licensing policy of the University;
