As a result of the research projects carried out within the scope of the LNBR, the Laboratory has since its creation added 33 patent applications filed with the National Institute of Industrial Property (INPI). A third of the total deposits is due to projects carried out in partnership with companies.
Our innovation team articulates activities to stimulate interaction with companies and other institutions to increase the impact of the research carried out at the LNBR. Among others, there are deposits held jointly with Brazilian universities such as the University of Campinas (Unicamp), the Fundação University of Caxias do Sul (FUCS), the University of São Paulo (USP) and the State University of São Paulo (Unesp). Over the years, LNBR underwent an internationalization effort, ensuring that nine of them were also deposited via the PCT (Patent Cooperation Treaty).
