Innovation Radius – International and Regional Scope

The regional environment of the Technische Universität Bergakademie Freiberg offers excellent conditions for the transfer of ideas, knowledge, and technology between science, industry, and society. The university disposes of a worldwide network through its close connection to the raw materials and energy industry as well as to the materials and basic industry. The university, embedded in the economic region of Central Saxony and the University City Freiberg, is appealing for students, researchers, and innovation partners.

Transfer of State-of-the-Art Research

The Technische Universität Bergakademie Freiberg is aiming at providing economic and societal benefit and, thus, transfers technological and scientific findings. What is known as the “third mission” translates into the targeted preparation of research results and the contacting of potential users.

Spin-offs – Best Conditions for Founders

For an application-oriented technical university such as Technische Universität Bergakademie Freiberg, spin-offs are a decisive part of the transfer of knowledge and technology. Promoting young enterprises is an integral part of the university's self-image. The university and three other Saxon universities offer potential entrepreneurs an ideal contact point with its participation in the SAXEED start-up service. The results become visible in diverse and successful spin-offs.

University Specialists for Industry and Research

Graduates with a university degree are highly demanded in the age of demographic change. Potential employers, alumni, researchers, and professors find relevant information for accelerated mutual exchange here. The Technische Universität Bergakademie Freiberg sees itself as an attractive employer – for researchers as well as for research supporting staff.

Further Education – Expert Knowledge for the Resource Industry

The importance of further education rises in the context of life-long learning. The Technische Universität Bergakademie Freiberg meets this development with its Professional Schools and already today engages in the further education specialized on raw materials.

Donation and Promotion for Teaching and Research

Particularly talented students that can be expected to show outstanding achievements in study and work are strongly supported by the "Verein der Freunde und Förderer" (Association of Friends and Sponsors). Thereby, the Technische Universität Bergakademie Freiberg depends on the assistance of organizations and private individuals. The education of the academic young talents can be secured, e. g., with participating in the Deutschlandstipendium (German scholarship).
