The transfer of knowledge to society and the integration of knowledge and impulses from business and society in research and teaching are part of the self-image of Technische Universität Berlin. Solutions for current societal challenges can only be found through mutual interactions. Knowledge and technology transfer is therefore a central task of Faculty II - Mathematics and Natural Sciences. In this way, innovative ideas from research can be further developed for the sustainable benefit of society and brought into application.
The activities of Faculty II in the area of knowledge and technology transfer include:
Transfer is an important goal of our two clusters of excellence. UniSysCat has set itself the goal of actively transferring innovative ideas and sustainable approaches from the field of green chemistry from science to application on the basis of start-ups. This is supported by the Chemical Invention Factory and the collaborative project GreenCHEM. A number of measures have also been established in the Cluster of Excellence MATH+: from specific transfer units for joint research with industry to special science communication programs.
