Transfernetz Rheinland-Pfalz connects four Universities and the seven Universities of Applied Sciences on the subject of technology transfer between industry and science. The network supports technology transfer through shared marketing, technology- and know-how-screening activities. To initiate cooperations between industry and academia in Rheinland-Palatinate the consultants for technology transfer at the universities can be contacted.
Model project Technology- und Sciencescouting
From 2010 to 2014 the universities of Kaiserslautern, Koblenz-Landau, Mainz and Trier executed the EFRE-funded model project „Technology- and Sciencescouting“ to test a new approach in technology transfer. Central aim of the project was the initialization of research cooperations between scientists and small and medium enterprises to stimulate innovation processes in the companies and to strengthen applied sciences at the universities.
