Nowadays the term "Technology Transfer" is primarily associated with the transfer of innovative, technological knowledge from public research institutions to the business world. For small and medium-sized enterprises this process means the chance to participate in this technological know-how, so that they can be well positioned for the future. After all, the scientific know-how should be where it can be economically implemented: in the business enterprises!
Efficient cooperation between business and science is therefore a decisive factor in the competition among business locations and regions. As the agency for innovation and technology transfer AGIT mbH promotes this in the Aachen Region with various projects:
