Knowledge and Technology Transfer within Helmholtz Association
The Helmholtz Association is committed to carrying out ambitious basic research geared towards practical applications in the real world. The transfer of knowledge and technology plays a decisive role in achieving this. It ensures that research findings flow directly into society and policymaking processes or are channelled into commercial innovations. By sharing their knowledge and using their findings to create useful, commercially viable products, Helmholtz scientists make an important contribution to German innovation. The transfer of knowledge and technology has therefore become increasingly important within the Helmholtz Association. This is evidenced by the strategic decisions that are being taken within the association as a whole and by the specific activities being carried out at the individual research centres.
