Please describe your approach detailled enough so that we can assess if we should start further discussions. However, please keep the protection of your work results and your efforts in mind. Therefore, please don’t provide confidential information at this stage.

Especially, please first file a patent application in your name before you provide us with any information, which you believe to comprise an invention. Only proceed if you are fine with that. Everything we receive at this stage, we will consider to be non-confidential.

If we see potential for a further collaboration, we will approach you and enter into a confidentiality agreement with you so that your information is protected in the course of the further disucssions.
