Knowledge and technology transfer and management of innovation-oriented projects

Clo­se col­la­bo­ra­ti­on bet­ween com­pa­nies and uni­ver­si­ties is an essen­ti­al foun­da­ti­on for an inno­va­ti­on-dri­ven eco­no­my. TUM Inter­na­tio­nal lever­a­ges its exper­ti­se to iden­ti­fy appro­pria­te rese­arch part­ners and to faci­li­ta­te inno­va­ti­on and tech­no­lo­gy trans­fer pro­jects, for exam­p­le with renow­ned mul­ti­na­tio­nal enter­pri­ses such as Sie­mens and Evo­nik.

The­r­e­fo­re, the work of TUM Inter­na­tio­nal goes far bey­ond the mere direct matching of rese­arch part­ners for bila­te­ral exch­an­ge or rese­arch pro­jects. It also sup­ports the estab­lish­ment of clus­ters of exper­ti­se on rele­vant rese­arch topics and pro­vi­des a plat­form for par­ti­ci­pan­ts to estab­lish new col­la­bo­ra­ti­ons by orga­ni­s­ing con­fe­ren­ces and work­shops. In addi­ti­on, TUM Inter­na­tio­nal mana­ges and pro­mo­tes high-level indus­try-aca­de­mia & rese­arch-govern­ment exch­an­ges to sus­tain­ab­ly streng­then long-term stra­te­gic coope­ra­ti­on and harness syn­er­gies.
Whe­re appro­pria­te, other stake­hol­ders such as start­ups, regio­nal deve­lo­p­ment agen­ci­es, foun­da­ti­ons, or civil socie­ty are inte­gra­ted into inno­va­ti­ve coope­ra­ti­on stra­te­gies. As such, TUM Inter­na­tio­nal opti­mal­ly tail­ors various plat­forms for know­ledge and tech­no­lo­gy trans­fer to the indi­vi­du­al objec­ti­ve and needs.  Some of our refe­rence part­ners are Sie­mens and Evo­nik.

German Center for Future Mobility (DZM)

The Ger­man Cen­ter for Future Mobi­li­ty (DZM) is inten­ded to con­tri­bu­te to the fur­ther deve­lo­p­ment of Ger­ma­ny as a mobi­li­ty loca­ti­on into an inter­na­tio­nal­ly visi­ble pio­neer for the mobi­li­ty of the future. In doing so, the DZM orchestra­tes a net­work struc­tu­re that bund­les cross-modal and inter­sec­to­ral capa­ci­ties and resour­ces and crea­tes new ones in a tar­ge­ted man­ner.
