Events and networking

We organize and participate in conferences, trade fairs, industry workshops and associations. We take part in events and networking formats and are active on dialog platforms that also go beyond the field of knowledge and technology transfer. In recent years we have developed a series of event formats aimed at promoting this exchange.

Working group “Technology transfer and commercial legal protection” (TTGR)

The transfer departments at Helmholtz Centers have been linked via a working group for over 30 years. This working group unites the transfer and patent experts from all 18 Helmholtz Centers. The TTGR working group (LINK) meets twice a year. External guests from transfer units at other non-university research associations and the broader transfer community are invited to these meetings on a regular basis.
