Knowledge and technology transfer at the University of Applied Sciences Potsdam

The transfer service promotes innovation at the interface between science and practice. The practice partners benefit from the expertise of the professors, the innovative and flexible approach of the students and the opportunity to be very close to current research. Transfer-related events such as workshops, conferences and trade fair appearances are organised to present the University of Applied Sciences Potsdam's research and transfer priorities to interested practice partners, to discuss them with them and to initiate cooperation.

In addition, the Transfer Service is also in regular contact with the transfer offices of other universities and business development organisations in the Berlin-Brandenburg region and thus has access to a broad network of cooperation partners and experts. Funding programmes such as the Brandenburg Innovation Voucher, the Transfer BONUS in Berlin and the DATIpilot provide financial support for transfer projects. As a company, you can also claim investments against tax.
