Transfer & Business

Understanding of Transfer

As a nationally leading resource university with international appeal, TU Bergakademie Freiberg pushes the mutual transfer between business and society. We want to develop, test and implement solutions for current challenges such as:

  • Energy transition,
  • scarcity of resources,
  • electrification of mobility,
  • environmental and climate protection
  • increasing globalisation and digitalisation.

While scientists are particularly interested in the theoretical publication of their academic work, practitioners aim at ready-to-use technologies. The mediation between these two groups is the main task of the Central Transfer Office of TU Bergakademie Freiberg. This forms a clearly defined interface, in particular to the SMEs of the Saxon economy.

For all stakeholders, the university is available as a regional partner and is committed to common objectives:

With our focus on the economy, we tie ourselves to a holistic understanding of transfer:

Transfer to Economy

The transfer employees actively represent the TU Bergakademie Freiberg as a provider of ideas and technology to the outside world. They evaluate existing technologies and future inventions in advance and then systematically apply them to commercial exploitation. In this way, sustainable structures are created at the university in order to establish contacts with regional technology purchasers. The input from the regional economy, on the other hand, provides the impetus for further, targeted research activities at TU Bergakademie Freiberg.

Knowledge and technology transfer at TU Bergakademie Freiberg means exchange beyond disciplines and institutions. In addition to the transfer assistants, a large number of employees and partners are involved in the transfer. The portfolio of transfer services is correspondingly broad and includes above all the areas:
