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.
8. - 9. Dezember in Berlin
The Innovation Days will provide a unique opportunity to learn more about high-performance technologies and spin-off projects in the fields of life sciences (focus on nutrition and crop science)and physical sciences (focus on photonics and sensor technology) from the leading German research organisations - the Max Planck Society, the Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft, the Helmholtz Association and the Leibniz Association. The partnering-event will feature highly interesting pitches and conference sessions and is a perfect platform for bringing together innovative researchers, technology transfer professionals, business development specialists, venture capital experts, as well as corporate venture executives.
