For Industry

Collaboration policy of National Institute of Chemistry (NIC) with Industry is based on three elementary principles where  NIC as a research institution protects interests of its business partners:

  1. The Institute protects partners’ trade secrets.
  2. The Institute has organized management of intellectual property rights and thereby allows business partners effective protection and exploitation of knowledge and inventions created in joint projects.
  3. In addition to the applicable rules in Slovenia, NIC respects all internationally recognized ethical rules and standards that apply to a specific field of research, including the European Code of Conduct for the preservation of research integrity.
