Our main task in technology transfer is to take crucial steps toward being able to apply research results, data, and technologies for particular purposes. We do this from low maturity all the way to prepared and usable results for target groups in society and business. We support researchers and innovation and transfer managers at the Helmholtz Centers using internal funding programs and event formats to close this gap.
The following graphic illustrates which of our programs addresses the different Application Readiness Levels (ARL). The ARL maturity level (1-9) is a modification of the Technology Readiness Level (TRL) used by NASA and the EU to classify stages of technology development.
