How do research findings make their way into business and politics? What are the transfer pathways for research to have an impact on society? How can citizens actively participate in research and work with scientists and academics to develop new solutions to urgent problems?
The interdisciplinary research project Transferwissenschaft aims to strengthen the transfer of research findings between the different areas and actors of the German innovation system. To this end, we focus on the following areas:
We explore what good transfer means, and how it can be organised. At the same time, we test teaching and training content and formats at research institutions in order to educate and train the next generation of researchers. Based on our research, we develop new methods and guidelines for transfer strategies and practices of the future. This pamphlet provides a brief overview of our focus areas and our team.
