Transfer Forums New and improved products can arise from the transfer of knowledge and technology between research and enterprises, between enterprises within an industry or between enterprises within different industries. Critical for the emergence of a transfer event is to attract protagonists with overlapping innovative interests for a common approach. The nanoValley.eu contact office establishes specific topic forums for this purpose, developing these into regional alliances in consultation with partners. Transfer forums build a product and market-related protagonist combination, mobilizing knowledge and techniques of nano & materials sciences for product innovations.

Transfer Partnership The introduction of a transfer forum is a partnership between one or just a few protagonists from business or science. Enterprises seek to collaborate with experts in order to achieve product innovation. Working groups in the sciences look for partners in order to transfer research knowledge in applications or to generate funds through research collaborations. Transfer partnerships are actively sought after and motivated by the nanoValley.eu contact office. In subsequent steps, resulting from the needs of the partners, further research and enterprise partners are gained. hinzugewonnen.




Working Principle
Transfer forums are thought of as a collaborative working platform. These can be formed and used by enterprises and scientific institutions. A condition is that all parties benefit from the cooperation. From a scientific perspective, research contracts are to be granted, or joint funding proposals formulated. In return, enterprises must be able to derive modified or even new products from the transfer forum work. These mutual benefits are a working principle of the transfer forums.
