Technology transfer and industry cooperation
Technology transfer as an instrument for the exchange and application of university knowledge for industry and society is one of the founding missions of the TU Hamburg. After all, findings from science and new technologies ensure the prosperity and progress of our country.
TuTech Innovation GmbH (TUTECH), founded in 1992, was Germany's first university-owned technology transfer company. TUTECH supports Hamburg University of Technology by mediating development requests from small and medium-sized enterprises and industry, and initiating research cooperations and thematic networks.
Hamburg Innovation (HI) is the knowledge and technology transfer institution of Hamburg's universities. HI provides companies with access to up-to-date research results and technologies and supports innovative, knowledge- or technology-oriented start-ups.
