About the Technology Transfer department

  • Our job is to promote the exchange between research and interested industrial and business partners. With this goal in mind, we arrange contact to relevant research groups and experts, and organise initial talks, workshops and lab visits.
  • As a central entry point, the Technology Transfer team accepts inquiries from industry and compares them with the existing research expertise. In addition, we also actively look for cooperation partners from industry for scientific developments which have market potential.
  • We can provide advice on patenting, licensing and initiating follow-up projects. In the case of challenging services, the Technology Transfer department helps you search for know-how and high-tech infrastructure within Kiel University’s broad range of subjects.
  • The Technology Transfer department pools skills in managing corporate investments, contracts and intellectual property under one roof.
