Transfer Breakfast: Does open scence block the way to exploitation?

November 18, 2019

Are open science and the commercial exploitation of research results mutually exclusive? Members of the HZDR staff gathered to discuss these question at the Transfer Breakfast on November 18, 2019.

Tobias Huste, who works in the field of computational science at the HZDR, was able to draw an important conclusion from the event: "The exchange with colleagues showed that it is worthwhile to at least keep an eye on the exploitation possibilities in the early stages of a project. As we discussed this topic on the example of scientific software development, it became clear that a sustainable software development process can significantly support the later exploitation process. Commercial exploitation does not rule out performing open science and vice versa".

The event was organized by the HZDR Alumni Network. The Transfer Breakfast serves to sensitize the participants to transfer topics, to generate new commercialisation ideas and to bind the HZDR employees to the alumni network at an early stage.

Transfer After-Work: Relaxed exchange of thoughts on transfer ideas

August 27, 2019

In a relaxed atmosphere with music and snacks, HZDR employees and scientists met for the first "Transfer After-Work". Away from the desk and the laboratory, about 20 interested people exchanged thoughts on transfer topics. How can the transfer culture be promoted at the HZDR? Do people have new transfer ideas? What kind of further education on transfer would be interesting for PhD students? These questions were discussed by the participants with the innovation managers of the department of Technology Transfer and Innovation. The next event is planned for autumn as a transfer breakfast.
