EMBL Enterprise Management Technology Transfer GmbH

EMBLEM was founded in 1999 in Heidelberg, Germany, as the exclusive technology transfer partner of the European Molecular Biology Laboratory (EMBL). Today we manage a portfolio of more than 1000 inventions and over 450 patents/copyrights from EMBL-scientists, EMBL–alumni and third parties. Our technologies span the life sciences in the broadest sense and include enabling technologies, molecular tools & assays, instruments & devices as well as software applications & databases. By working closely with industrial partners in the pharmaceutical, biotech, mechanical/electrical engineering and IT fields we jointly develop our technologies into marketable products.


You have a new discovery and would like to know how to protect and commercialise it? Or you have a protected invention and want to bring it to the next level? Or you are simply lost in the technology transfer process? We have compiled the most important information and documents on our inventor pages. Some of the content is only accessible from the EMBL intranet. If you are seeking information from outside of EMBL or cannot find what you are looking for, please get in touch with us.


EMBLEM offers licenses to an extensive portfolio of technologies from various sectors of the life sciences. We also provide access to a broad range of state-of-the-art molecular biology services, consultancy by EMBL scientists and research collaborations.
