Have you already heard of Marblar? It´s an invention, well actually a social network for inventors, an Oxford University postgraduate student came up with. The Telegraph calles it „the facebook for inventors“.
According to the article the network allows inventors to post their discoveries and researchers are encouraged to pitch their ideas on how the inventions could be used commercially.
The site plans to launch over the summer. It is currently in discussions with individuals, companies, universities, charities and a Formula 1 team to have their scientific discoveries placed on the network.
Marblar has also already attracted the attention of IP Group, a London-listed business that commercialises intellectual property from universities.
