The project

Have you ever wondered why so many great research results are not taken up by the industry or why an idea is not taken up by people and a startup is founded from it? We want to improve this with new approaches and bring in a little more system out of the perceived coincidence and thus strengthen the transfer from science to industry.

One idea is to systematically evaluate the research results and start-up ideas. Evaluation criteria can be sustainability criteria, industrial relevance, technical maturity and much more. be. In the project, we want to develop a relevance-based transfer approach and discuss and evaluate it with students, academic staff, professors and industrial companies.
