Country of Origin: Belgium
Reference Number: TRBE20160809001
Publication Date: 9 August 2016


A Belgian multinational active in consumer goods looks for a product that delivers significant and long lasting repair to damaged tooth enamel and dentin. Industrial partners or research institutions that possess suitable solutions are sought for licence agreement or technical agreement with the large account.


A Belgian multinational based in Brussels and active in consumer goods wishes to increase its portfolio of products with a product which will enhance the customer's experience and therefore allow the company to broaden its current range of products with a new offer which clients can choose from.

With such an aim, this company is looking for products that provide superior repair performance vs the conventional fluoride toothpaste and rinse formulations.

Products, technologies or ingredients are expected to have the following benefit areas of interest:

- Deposited mineral is resistant to subsequent damage/removal by brushing or acid challenge
- Performance demonstrated in full formulations
- Performance is demonstrated in recognized hard tissue performance tests
- Unique capability that demonstrate and quantify the benefit
- Product must have strong global IP (granted or filed patents)

The company is looking for collaboration with industrial partners or research centres able to provide products or technologies delivering significant and long lasting repair to damaged tooth enamel and dentin.

The purpose would be setting up a long lasting cooperation allowing the large account to comply with its internal strategy and for the potential partner to interact in a systematic way with
the large account so as to have immediate access to forthcoming similar requests.

Actually, for the technical cooperation, this large account intends to work together with potential partners having the suitable solution coupled to the related knowledge in the specific domain.
As for the licence agreement, should an already developed solution exist and be fully compliant with the technical requirements listed, the large account would envisage discussions on the terms of the licence use.
