19. What happens after disclosure of the invention at Freie Universität Berlin?

As soon as an invention disclosure is received by the Patent and License Service (PULS), a short formal review of documents is initially conducted to ensure they are complete and comprehensible. Another review is then conducted to ensure that the invention incorporates novelty, an inventive step, and the potential for commercial exploitation. The university shall decide, within a statutory deadline of no more than four months, whether the invention is to be claimed on the part of Freie Universität Berlin or released to the inventor.
