After teaching and research, the University’s third mission is to provide services to the community. The University of Mons is an important actor in the development of the region.
To carry out its community service goal, the University has devised a specific policy on managing intellectual property and transferring the results of its research to the socio-economic sphere. UMONS has created a department devoted to carrying out this task (the technology transfer office) and has set down precise regulations on intellectual property. These regulations stipulate the means of protecting and exploiting the results obtained within the walls of the University and under its responsibility. To download the regulations, click here.
