Knowledge & technology transfer
Actively transferring research findings and academic expertise to the sphere of practical application is highly valued at TU Clausthal – not only because of our statutory duty to share knowledge and transfer technology but also, indeed chiefly, because of the university’s understanding of its own role in society. The results of the research conducted at TU Clausthal and the knowledge associated with it are among the university’s key assets, which it uses to achieve the greatest possible benefit to society. At the same time, the university profits by the process of exchange with business and society to ensure that its research, degree programs, and teaching are kept relevant, up to date, and focused on real-world applicability.
