Scientific publications are an important element in the way we share our knowledge. However, publications are only submitted when the results that are relevant to our businesses have been secured by patent applications. You can find a list of recent publications from Novozymes' scientists on the left.
Novozymes also has a very active patenting strategy. We see patents as an important means of both securing our technologies against unauthorized copying and of making it possible for us to recoup our investments in research and development.
Patent applications are published after 18 months, and thereby also function as a means for disseminating our knowledge and technologies to the outside world.
