Development and application of two inventions in the field of process technology, the laminar counterflow recuperator and the rotational phase separator are described. Both innovations stem from ongoing scientific research and are examples of succesfull innovations through combined university and industry research.Apart from the underlying body of knowledge, attention is paid to the interaction between research, market impulses and the intellectual property position of the inventor. The conclusion drawn is that while the first stage of development is characterised by open scientific discussions with the concept being protected by patents, technology development is more often than not screened from public disclosure.
