Fokus Transfer webportal ©Copyright: TA

The new web portal FokusTransfer has been online since spring 2021. As a joint initiative to strengthen and further develop KTT in Germany, various networks, institutions and companies have joined forces under the coordination of TransferAllianz e. V. as the portal's responsible body to make their diverse knowledge and own experiences accessible to the entire transfer community. The portal emerged from the BMBF-funded project BePerfekt, in which the HZDR was involved as a project partner. The portal now thrives on participation - all those interested in knowledge and technology transfer are cordially invited to contribute information and content!

Of course, the portal also contains information on events, further education and much more. It's worth a look.
