The transfer network

The transfer network aims to bring together various partners to develop application-oriented research projects.

The innovation and network managers serve as contact partners. They work closely with researchers and have an eye on current research at H-BRS. They identify suitable research and development projects and connect them to partners from business, politics and civil society. Event series such as Innovation Breakfasts link up established and potential partners from the region with experts from research and business to develop ideas for current and future challenges.

Another central element of the transfer network is the Innovation Mall. This online portal is currently under construction and promotes networking and exchange projects, transfer of ideas between H-BRS and its partners, and further cooperations.  

The Transfer Network is part of the Centre for science and technology transfer (ZWT), whose goal it is to share knowledge and technologies with business and society and facilitate practical application.

Feel free to contact the innovation and network managers.
