Our understanding of transfer

Knowledge and technology transfer means to us the exchange of scientific knowledge, innovations and solutions with all scientific areas of the university and society, business, politics and culture.

As an innovative university, we want to shape the change in society with our knowledge and expertise.

Our self-conception



With our competence centers and their strong networks between each other, we offer transfer services in many socially relevant future-orientated fields - in accordance with the sustainable development goals of the United Nations.

In research and teaching, we stand out for our transdisciplinary and interconnected way of collaboration that enables a high level of application-orientation and transferability of our approaches to industry and society.



We see ourselves as important partners within the regional innovation system. In direct dialogue between science, business and society, we continuously address new socially relevant topics and develop solutions in cooperation with our project partners. Become a HFT partner for more innovative impact in the region.
