Guidelines for Transfer
The technology transfer offices contribute significantly to the innovative performance of Niedersachsen. Thereby they orientate themselves on the following guidelines:
- The technology transfer offices are central service institutions at their universities for scientists and companies. In order to strengthen the regional economic and social development, they proliferate knowledge in a target-oriented way. This leads to a broad socioeconomic benefit in the form of new products, new services or new methods.
- The technology transfer offices utililize the whole research portfolio for the public and private sector. They support communication and interaction between science and economy, the development of an entrepreneurial spirit and the appropriate handling of intellectual property rights.
- Niedersachsen technology transfer offices form a network in which they exchange experience and therefore strengthen the effectiveness of science and technology transfer. Through network activities they find access to scientific competence state-wide.
