Brainshell Symbol

Brainshell Symbol

Brainshell looks at intellectual property from two sides: from the university's perspective and the perspective of commercial firms. This approach is illustrated in the company's symbol – six heads. Depending on the point of view, sometimes three black heads are prevalent, sometimes three white heads come to the fore and sometimes one sees all six at the same time.

Client information


Brainshell is an agency that was founded in February, 2002, as a special department of ZukunftsAgentur Brandenburg GmbH (ZAB) in order to market the intellectual property of Brandenburg's eight colleges and universities.

The goal of this 'patent exploitation offensive', supported by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research, is to make maximum use of the region's innovation potential.

Brainshell supports the colleges in developing, using and marketing patent rights. The agency acts as a link between research institutes and business, an interface between technology and the marketplace.

ZukunftsAgentur Brandenburg

ZukunftsAgentur Brandenburg GmbH (ZAB) is Brandenburg's central agency for business development and for consultancy services in the fields of technology, innovation and energy.

ZAB can therefore offer a specialised range of services which focus on supporting the recipients of state, federal or EU subsidies and on providing assistance in all financing issues.

ZAB is a one-stop agency with a two-pronged approach: providing assistance for companies settling in Brandenburg and support for Brandenburg's companies wanting to invest abroad.
