The core expertise of the Professionalizing Transfer Processes Unit lies in researching the mechanisms of successful knowledge transfer processes. We develop and evaluate instruments and organizational structures in order to increase the efficiency of knowledge transfer.
We work in a complex environment where several specialized disciplines collaborate. The cooperation between the research, political, industrial and NGO stakeholders involved is one of the key aspects of innovation success.
We investigate how institutions and the respective social, political and economic spheres of influence impact on the exploitation of technical and social innovations.
We ensure that our analyses are based on the latest research methods and findings. At the same time, they are guided by the needs of our clients – from the initial concept to its realization. That is how we close the gap between research and practical application.
Our clients and partners from the business, science and political communities use the results of our research to strategically plan, develop and design their future cooperation, business and funding activities.
