Alumni Events

Upcoming Alumni Events:

  • Transfer Breakfast 18.11.2019, 9-11 am - Foyer of the library (building 104) at the HZDR

You can look forward to a nice networking event with a small breakfast buffet where you can talk with your colleagues and the HZDR transfer staff. Also alumni are more than welcome to join! Together we will have a relaxed start in the new week. You will have the opportunity to exchange new transfer ideas with like-minded people and share experiences. We plan to organise three “theme islands”:

  1. Experiences and thoughts on open innovation platforms
  2. Experiences and thoughts on the possible tension between open data / open source and commercial transfer
  3. New transfer ideas (“Pitch your ideas”).

Please sign up by 12.11. at latest by emailing or calling 0351 260 2374 / Noora Kinnunen

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.
