- have a patent or patent application for your invention or are you still able to patent it on an international scale and

How we evaluate new inventions and products
For a first assessment of your product, technology or invention, please supply some general information about the field of use, developmental state (i.e. pre-clinical, clinical, prototype etc.), patent status and unique properties that distinguish your product or drug and put it ahead of current state of the art. This will allow us to make a first estimation of marketability, further investments needed and time frame for out-licensing or marketing of your product.
Since we base our business collaborations mutual benefit, trust and respect for your work, we are committed to protect your work and your intellectual property. We will treat all information that we receive from you as strictly confidential. In order to protect your know-how, please do not send any inventive details like chemical structures, construction or design details on first contact. The disclosure of such specific information could interfere with your ability to patent your invention. Before reviewing any detailed information we will sign a non-disclosure agreement with you. This will protect the confidentiality of your data.
After signing a confidentiality agreement, we will make a thorough assessment and evaluation of your product or invention. This will give you and us a clear understanding whether there is a market for your invention, how big this market is, what developmental, documentary or regulatory work still needs to be done and what revenues or royalties can be expected in the future. Also we will analyze the patent situation of your invention and the competition by other patents or products. Based on these results, Athenion decides whether to make you an offer for a development and marketing cooperation.
