Re-understand transfer

Joint research for a new understanding of knowledge and technology transfer

Methods: Systematic literature analysis

We develop a new concept of knowledge and technology transfer on the basis of a systematic collection of scientific literature. In this way, we create the scientific basis for our application-oriented work, i.e. the development and testing of transfer tools, instructions for action, communication measures as well as teaching and further education formats to improve and strengthen transfer practice.

The aim of systematic literature analysis is to identify the essential characteristics of bidirectional transfer processes. We are currently engaged in the full-text analysis of our literature sample. We have already completed important steps of analysis – defining the search strings, screening the databases, cleaning up the sample and screening abstracts.

Our methodological approach follows strict scientific criteria and thus ensures that the redesign of the concept of transfer contributes significantly to national and international discourses and can develop a corresponding impact.
