Marketing and Transfer

The networking of the research partners in the performance center goes beyond collaboration in joint research projects. In order to achieve the essential goal – the sustainable transfer of results to science and industry – we consider the various transfer paths from basic and applied research to industry and society as well as their repercussions on research. Currently, the following transfer paths are being followed:

Transfer Paths

 

Contract Research

  • Industrial contracts: Regular customers and new customer acquisition
  • Industry seminars and conferences
  • Demonstrators and real labs
 

Licensing (of Property Rights)

  • IP exploitation of software and simulation solutions
  • Licensing business with spin-offs and software companies
 

Spin-Offs

  • Pioneering simulation and software technologies
  • Closing technological gaps in external start-ups and SMEs
 

Continuing Education (for Business)

  • Current: Software Engineering, Digital Commercial Vehicle Technology, Deep Learning
  • Coming soon: Industry 4.0, Process Simulation
 

Heads and Career

  • Promotion of young researchers with the TUK (workshops, lectures, graduate theses)
  • Felix Klein Academy of Mathematics Scholarship Program for Bachelor, Master and PhD)
 

Science Communication

  • Events Citizen Participation
  • Joint public relations
  • Expert advice for and with politics
  • Scientific publications
  • Participation in regional projects: OD Pfalz, Digital Villages, EnStadt: Pfaff
 

Infrastructure Services

  • Research-assisted access to scientific infrastructures 
  • Increasing the effectiveness of existing infrastructure through shared use
 

Standardization and Norming

  • Expansion of membership in standardization bodies (e.g. DIN, VDE, DKE, JEDEC)
  • Coordinated membership in associations (e.g. GI, VDE, IEEE, ACM, Bitkom, ASIM, GAUSS-Allianz, or similar)

To achieve the goals of the last transfer paths, we rely on cooperation with established partners at the location in the areas of spin-offs (Gründungsbüro KL, IHK Pfalz), continuing education (including DISC as a postgraduate distance learning program) and civil society (Science and Innovation Alliance, Zukunftsregion Westpfalz).
