Open Innovation Licensing

What is Open Innovation Licensing?

Open Innovation Licensing (OIL) is an online platform that aims to support innovators in their quest for knowledge, by making new technological inventions easily and conveniently accessible. Whether you are a company representative, researcher or student, OIL can provide you with the necessary technology for your latest projects. 

We believe in risk-free technology licensing. That is why we will provide you with a trial license. This way you can make sure that the technology matches your needs and integrates well within your organization, before you pay for it. The OIL programme introduces a two-step licensing process, enabling you to try technologies on non-commercial terms, before you sign on for a commercial license. 


The licensing process is as easy as it gets. As an OIL user you will have a range of benefits from the program:

  • No registration required
  • Free trial license
  • Possibility to add your own technology requests
  • Integration support by mediating the communication with the inventors
  • Online access to trial and commercial licensing agreements

You can start browsing inventions immediately and you will find all the necessary information online in our FAQ section. If there is something else you'd like to inquire about, don't hesitate to contact our team.
