Technology transfer ─ innovations for industry
Research at the HZDR makes major contributions to improving cancer visualization and treatment, the sustainable use of resources, and a better understanding of matter and materials. To ensure that our ideas are applied swiftly, we cooperate with industrial partners and clinics, license technologies to companies and launch new firms. We also pass on knowledge and expertise by opening our research facilities to third parties for joint use, making data available to others, and providing consulting services.
The Technology Transfer and Legal Affairs Department bundles all the Center’s skills and support services that are essential for transfer – ranging from patent, innovation and contract management to technology marketing.
