    Technology Transfer at the HTWG Konstanz

    The HTWG Konstanz - University of Applied Sciences makes its research findings available to industry. For this purpose, different transfer models have been developed that are tailor-made for the needs of companies. Businesses profit from the innovations created in applied research and the HTWG Konstanz benefits from the additional collaborative projects.

    The HTWG Konstanz - University of Applied Sciences has set up and successfully carried out more than 400 cooperation, transfer and licensing agreements with companies. Facilities such as the Modellfabrik Bodensee 4.0 and the Open Innovation Lab (OIL) at the HTWG Konstanz are places on campus where transdisciplinary learning and research is carried out. Here innovations in engineering, management and design are tested before being transferred to business and society in general.

    The main focus of the research can be seen in the publicly supported research projects.
