Science & Transfer

Technology Transfer


Technology Transfer from research into society and business is of increasing importance
and therefore an important integral part of HZG´s strategy.
All transfer activities are accompanied by the team of Technology Transfer Support (TTS).
Our mission is to create a suitable environment to enable technology transfer from science
to practical application. The team of the TTS is the point of contact for HZG´s scientists with respect to inventions or projects for the validation of new technologies developed at HZG as well as for requests from industry e.g. regarding cooperation projects, contract research or licensing-in HZG´s patent protected technologies.
