Science for practice and for the benefit of society

Our work in teaching and research brings practical benefits, especially in the implementation of the goals of sustainable development (SDGs). The university actively contributes and provides impulses for addressing current challenges, such as:

  • Energy transition, 
  • Management of critical resources, 
  • Sustainable mobility, 
  • Environmental and climate protection, 
  • Digitalization and the use of artificial intelligence. 

In facilitating communication between our scientists and partners from business and society, our Central Transfer Office and the team of our "Innovative University" project, 4transfer, provide support.TU Bergakademie Freiberg acts as a provider of ideas and technologies. Our transfer team evaluates existing technologies and inventions in advance and systematically transforms them into commercial innovations. This creates sustainable structures for establishing contacts with technology users. Conversely, input from industry provides the impetus for further, targeted research activities at TU Bergakademie Freiberg.
